2008 Grenfell Henry Lawson Festival of Arts Street Procession

By Darren Stones

The 2008 Grenfell Henry Lawson Festival of Arts was held at its traditional time of the Queen's Birthday long weekend in June. The street procession is a festival highlight, with locals coming out in droves to participate and witness this colourful event.

Before the procession commenced, the Australian National Anthem was sung by Christa Hughes.

Here's a collection of images I took on Saturday June 7, 2008.

This photograph was taken by my father Gordon Stones at the Henry Lawson Obelisk at Grenfell, New South Wales, Australia during the 2008 festival, which was held during the Queen’s Birthday long weekend in June. The obelisk marks the birthplace of famous Australian poet Henry Lawson.

Thank you to all the marvellous people I had the pleasure of meeting, chatting and dining with during the festival.
