Australian rock music singer-songwriter, radio presenter and television personality Ella Hooper will perform at this year’s Benalla Festival.
‘‘We have more than 40 events as part of the 2017 festival,’’ Benalla Festival advisory committee chairwoman Barbara Alexander said.
The festival, which runs from November 4 to 12, includes the Saturday by the Lake event, the street parade, music, art exhibitions, the Day in the Gardens market and events across the surrounding small towns.
‘‘Benalla and district will be on show to the many visitors to Benalla over the festival period,’’ Cr Alexander said.
Community groups, organisations, businesses, schools and individuals are being invited to be part of this year’s street parade.
‘‘The parade is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate our community, its creativity and showcase our many groups, schools, organisations and businesses to community and visitors,’’ Cr Alexander said.
The parade is on Saturday, November 11, at 2pm, with the theme ‘‘Good vibrations’’ — a celebration of music and dance in the community.
