Draw Your Best for Wagga Waggafest - 21 January 2015

Wagga Wagga’s Mayor is calling on the community’s kids to help make the fifth year of Wagga Waggafest the best yet.

This year, kids will get the opportunity to have elements of their drawings featured in the Waggafest artwork and promotional material.

A Waggafest 2015 “Draw Your Best …” Kids Drawing Studio will be set up on the main stage at Wagga Wagga City Council’s Australia Day celebrations on Sunday 25 January in the Victory Memorial Gardens from 9am to 2pm.

Mayor of the City of Wagga Wagga, Councillor Rod Kendall, said the short film festival was the perfect platform for people to share their unique stories on what makes Wagga a great city to live, work and play.

“Since it began in 2011, Waggafest has fostered and cultivated talent from across Wagga and the world, but we believe ‘the best is yet to come’,” he said.

“Waggafest continues to grow as does our community and we’re including kids in this project because they are the best that is yet to come for Wagga.”

Kids will be asked to draw what they think is the best – something they love about Wagga, their favourite animal or anything that inspires them to put pencil to paper.

Those drawings will then be incorporated into the Waggafest 2015 promotional material.

“Council wants to support people to tell unique Wagga stories, and now our city’s kids can help get involved with this growing festival,” Cr Kendall said.
