It’s that time of the year again when locals are urged to get their application forms in to participate in the 2019 Real Juice Company Citrus Sculptures.

“If entering a new sculpture this year, we’d love to see people think outside the box with their design and be creative, it doesn’t have to relate to your business, but more something that visitors will remember,” said Georgina Horton, Griffith City Council Events Coordinator.

Applications for new sculptures are due in on Friday 26 July 2019, and existing sculpture forms are due by Friday 2 August 2019.

“We are looking forward to growing our event this year, especially heading into our 25th anniversary next year, which will be a big one,” Ms Horton said.

“It’s such a great event that brings so many people in our community together and it is easy to get involved, just contact our Tourism Team on and ask for an application form.

“We’re excited to see what people come up with this year.”

Chair of the Spring Fest Working Group, Councillor Rina Mercuri said the citrus sculptures were a wonderful opportunity for businesses to capitalise on the influx of visitors and the coverage they receive.

“Thousands of visitors come to town for Spring Fest and most of them stop by, take photos, and share the unique experience with others,” Cr Mercuri said.

“It’s a fantastic way to get exposure especially if your sculpture stands out as something a bit different.” 

Construction day for the Real Juice Company Citrus Sculptures this year will be Sunday 13 October, with dismantle taking place on Sunday 27 October.

Griffith Spring Fest incorporates the Griffith Garden Festival, Real Juice Company Citrus Sculptures and so many other events that showcase everything our region has to offer.
