Busk and win $1000

COAL Creek is hosting this year’s South Gippsland Busker’s Festival and the winning busker can receive $1000, with $500 for second and $250 for third.
Already the event, to be held this Sunday, November 3, from 9am-6pm has drawn some 42 individual entries.
For those who wish to busk and haven’t filled out an entry form, you can do so either before the event or on the day from 9am.
Rowena Ashley, coordinator at Coal Creek Community Park and Museum at Korumburra, said Coal Creek took over the event this year after numbers on the busker’s festival committee were in decline.
“Rather than see the event fail, we decided to host it at the park where we can have it under our umbrella with all the insurance coverage needed,” Rowena said.
“This year we are offering cash prizes. We have reduced entry fees to $5 per person to encourage more participants.
“There should be a lot of people about being cup weekend so we’re hoping for a big crowd.”
So far there are a number of groups involved with a 10-piece band included in the entries.
The buskers can set up anywhere throughout the park and put their hats out for donations.
