The Mt Morgan Golden Mount Festival Committee is busy once again preparing for this year's festival and have chosen a "comedy" theme as part of the iconic annual festival, which celebrates Mount Morgan and it's rich heritage and is being held from the 02nd to the 04th of May, 2014.
We are calling for offers and/or 'expressions of interest' from anyone wanting to put together a float or do comic skits or maybe you would like to dress as your favourite comic character and be part of the parade. We hope to have a stand-up comedy night and would love to hear from budding comedians eager to perform on the night or through the festival.
Over the three days we have endeavoured to provide an action packed and entertaining line-up, to allow festival celebrations and activities for all ages and interests over the weekend.
