The Fingal Valley’s sporting history and the beauty of spring will be celebrated at the Avoca Spring Festival on Sunday.

The festival, to be held from 10am to 4pm at Boucher Park and the Memorial Hall, will feature a daffodil show, children’s drawing competition, a Holden car display and live entertainment. The Avoca Museum and Information Centre will also launch its sports exhibition, celebrating the successes of the sporting heroes of the region. Original trophies, uniforms and memorabilia will be on display.

Greater Esk Tourism Group founder Mary Knowles, herself a champion clay shooter, said the area was rich in achievements.

“Brian Lowe from Rossarden played for Geelong and there was a chap from Rossarden who played for Fitzroy,” she said.
