SEE CONSTRUCTION DAY 2015 WHERE WE CELEBRATED THE 20TH ANNIVERSARY
Local videographer, Vince Bucello, captured the time when over 700 volunteers congregate to construct over 70 Citrus Sculptures.
Leading up to Griffith Spring Fest, all groups are given the specially made and treated rubber bands that protect the citrus throughout the two weeks. Groups are encouraged to attach the bands to the frames prior to arriving on site for Construction Day, to minimise time spent on the day.
Here, you will see on Construction Day, approximately 100,000 oranges are delivered to Banna Avenue and from sunrise, all groups arrive to deliver their sculpture by trailer, ute, truck or crane. By 9am, most sculptures are on display and it is hard to believe the work done to build such a unique and amazing exhibition of citrus in our region.
