Sunday just gone was Tall Trees in Cooran, the festival we started last year. We had an amazing day. The Sunshine Coast received a deluge of rain and high winds raged everywhere, apart from Cooran. In quiet little Cooran we had light rains for some of the day. We couldn't see the sun for the cloud cover but it did not deter us from having a fabulous day. We had to cancel several parts of the planned event but went ahead with what we could. We gathered in Pioneer park, under canvas to shelter from the elements. There was great food and music, fun with Clown Man Brad Smith and Fairy Princess Kate for the children, Tree planting with Councillor Lew Brenan, a wonderful Art Exhibition and an extremely interesting talk by Dr Eve Fesl on the culture and heritage of our area. The Ride on Mower Convoy record is now 6 so we challenge all you community groups out there to beat us. Noosa Pipe Band came out in force to open the day with their haunting melodies and the children decorated their bikes in great style. We hope to incorporate the things we couldn't do into the Cooran Eco Markets over the next few months, so that all the hard work put in over the last 6 months doesn't go to waste. We will let you know the dates as they come up. There will be workshops, the skate comp, music and more.
