Locals enjoy Health & Harmony show

NOT ALL visitors to the Health and Harmony Festival at Maryborough got in legitimately on Saturday but they all seemed to enjoy themselves.

Organiser Mary Bird said some people snuck in through the back door to avoid paying the gold coin entry – half of which is being donated to a children’s cancer charity.

“It was a bit hard to police,” Ms Bird said.

“But overall it was a success and the stallholders and visitors were happy.”

The first festival organised by Ms Bird and friend Desley Neilsen was held at the Maryborough’s Senior Citizen’s Centre in February.

“This time we had a much bigger hall at the showgrounds and the stallholders were more spread out,” Ms Bird said.

“We had psychics, massage therapists, reiki, craft, lots of crystals and jewellery.

“There were some beautiful jewellery stalls that had the most exquisite settings and stones.”

Music from American Indian drums added to the ambience of the event.

The event was run by a group of volunteers who share similar interests.

Ms Bird has been practicing reiki for several years and also does tarot readings.
