Blessing made Falls flourish

I have been reading about the Falls Festival how it was the best one yet, incidents were down, relaxed calm and friendly atmosphere etc, which is great.

Byron Echo did an article before the Falls Festival about the smoking/blessing ceremony performed by the local original (Minyanbal/Yugembeh) people. They also did a Welcome to Country on the opening day of the festival. This has not been done at the previous Falls Festivals here.

I would like to pay acknowledgment to those who performed these ceremonies that made this years’ festival the best one yet. It is obvious to me that this blessing made this difference, so thank you for making it real, keeping your culture and looking after us all here.
