BV Festival 2000


Full version 10mins
Looking Back in Time …
Despite having limited resources, Festival 2000 was a great success. The entire exercise of staging Festival 2000 is an example of how a small community can pull together to create a positive, fun filled family festival. Despite the difficulties faced, community members, business people and organisations such as the Brunswick Heads Chamber of Commerce, Festival 2000 Committee, the Brunswick Heads Village Committee and local service and sporting clubs combined their manpower and resources to create a very wothwhile event which gave two weeks of entertainment to locals and tourists. Comments from tourists visiting the area were very positive. Many expressed their gratitude to locals for staging this very special event which became a highlight of their celebrations for the Year 2000.
