Shine your boots for Munna dancing

SHINE off your square-dancing boots and dust off your cowboy hat, because the Munna Creek Country Festival is coming your way.

The award-winning music festival will open at Munna Creek this month, bringing top country artists from across the country to the region.

This year's festival will be even bigger and better than the last, according to festival organiser Bronco Jensen, who said the small group of organisers were working to make their second event one to remember.

"We have more musical stars performing this year, so we have a great line-up of music and poetry acts," Mr Jensen said.

"Last year was our very first event, and we had a great response from everyone who attended.

"We are hoping this year's will be even bigger."

More than 600 people attended the two concerts at the first annual Munna Creek Country Festival, Mr Jensen said.

"We are hoping to have around 1000 visitors this year," he said.

"We've already had a great response from stall-holder for the 2012 event as well, and last year we only had one stall.

"So the event is getting bigger."

More than 15 country music performers will take to the stage at Munna Creek including Lindsay "Waddo" Waddington, Dianne Lindsay and Jamie Davis.

The Munna Creek Country Festival will be held at the Munna Creek Hall and Recreation grounds from October 18 to 21. Visit munnacreekhall.com for more information or to view ticket prices.
