Maffra Mardi Gras
Beginning in 1957, Maffra Mardi Gras is a community fundraiser and one of Wellington Shire's oldest events.
Local community groups nominate an entrant to represent their organisation, and a friendly six week period of fundraising rivalry, precedes the event.
The Maffra Mardi Gras will culminate with a street parade followed by the announcement of the winner.
The day will include market and food stalls, street entertainment, carnival rides, face painting and an animal nursery before the street parade. It is a proven family friendly event, with opportunities for many community organisations to raise some much needed funds at the beginning of the calendar year.
The theme for 2015 will be the ANZAC Spirit, acknowledging the centenary of Australia's involvement in World War 1, military aviation and submarines.
