Dogs show off in Federal Park

THE hills will be alive with the sound of howling on Saturday as the 13th annual Federal Park Party hosts its biannual - and much lauded - Dog Show.

Entrants are encouraged to parade their costumed canines to vie for a number of awards including the highly esteemed Best in Show.

Competitors need to be microchipped and on a lead, and registered by 3.30pm for a 4pm start. Entry is $2 per pooch.

A highlight on the hinterland calendar, this year's Federal Park Party features performances from local musicians Jesse Morris, Monica and Bridget Brandolini, Gaby Bogart, and a local ukulele group.

Residents from surrounding towns like Goonengerry, Rosebank and Eureka contribute to the festive atmosphere by lining Federal Park with some of the region's finest food, artisan and second-hand stalls.

For toddlers, tweens and teens, there will be entertainment from the party's noon start, including a busking competition (registration starts at midday), jumping castle and skate ramp facilities.

Food and music by Federal resident DJ Pob will be provided after the sun sets.

For more information phone Gary on 6688 4044.
