Castle Hill Showground will host the 'Orange Bloom Festival' this year as the event moves to
a new location.

The festival will be held over two days in September and will be much bigger than in previous years as a result of its move to the showground. Hills Shire Mayor, Councillor Andrew Jefferies believes the new look festival is set to be exciting. He said:

“It's fantastic to see such a long-running and loved community event moving to one of our most long-running and loved community spaces. The Castle Hill Showground is an excellent location that gives OBF the chance to grow”

This year's event will also the return of the 'Orange Blossom Parade' which has not been held for the past few years and for which, Councillor Jefferies said, many local groups had asked to return.

Community organisations and schools are now being invited to take part in the parade and groups that join could use banner printing to attract spectators to their float.

The event will also include a classic car display, a petting zoo, performances from local groups and the festival art awards.

On the Saturday evening, there will be family entertainment and a range of food trucks from around Sydney will be providing dinner.

The Orange Blossom Festival takes place on Saturday September 19 and Sunday September 20.
