'las vegas in murwillumbah'

VOLUNTEERS at the Murwillumbah Festival of Performing Arts were flat out yesterday on what would usually be their day off.

Organisers had to add an extra day in the dance section to accommodate for the high number of entries.

“We have 350 troupes of dancers, 80 more groups than the previous year,” festival president Arthur Holmes said.

“It's the highest number of dance entries for the festival so far.”

Mr Holmes said today and tomorrow's dances will be spectacular.

“Anybody who misses this weekend misses out. It's Las Vegas in Murwillumbah,” he said.

The daily festival program is available in the Tweed Daily News everyday or the full program is at www.murbahfestival.com.au
