The grand opening of the biennial Festival of Fungi was a spectacular sight, with this years event held at the grounds of the grand old North Eastern Hotel in Euroa. Little Projector Company was back with their mesmerising light displays co-created with the help of local school children. These videos were customised and projected onto the walls of the pub for all to see. Over 100 curious souls entered the gate to see the Northo in a way it’d never been seen in its long history. Food trucks and a sausage sizzle delivered much needed tasty treats on the last of the cold autumn nights, with fire barrels becoming the focal points for laughter between locals and newcomers.
Short speeches were made by President of Strathbogie Ranges Conservation Helen McKernan, Strathbogie Mayor Laura Bink, and fungi expert Alison Pouliot, each praising the efforts of those who made the event possible. Thanks to Little Projector Company for creating the amazing light and soundscapes, to the SRCMN members who made it all happen, to the food providers for providing delicious morsels, to the management of the North Eastern Hotel for being so generous with their support and to those who braved to cold to see Euroa in a new light.
