Pear party fun at Toora
THE Friends of the Toora Heritage Pear Orchard committee held its third annual Pear Party at the heritage orchard on Sunday.
The day was a great success, despite the ongoing threat of rain throughout the day.
Friend’s group committee member Meryl Agars said the day featured plenty of things to see and do for all ages.
“We had supervised children’s activities running all day, as well as a cider making display in the afternoon,” she said.
“There was be bocce and quoits played throughout the event, where anybody was invited to join in.
“We had plenty of food options, including a sausage sizzle (with pear relish), crepes with pear syrup, pear strudel, slice and muffins, pear cider and pear ice cream.
Ms Agars said they had quite a good lot of fruit this year, which was ripe just in time for the festival.
People were able to pick their own pears straight out of the orchard, which proved popular as a family friendly activity.
