The 5th Annual Rhubarb Festival started yesterday in Hopedale.
Sukie Aggek is the CYN Fieldworker.
She says it started off with a community barbecue, sumo wrestling and fireworks.
Today’s events include kids’ games, the fireman’s challenge and a giant bingo.
Throughout the week, there will be adult and children’s games, including fear factor and a flat race.
A senior’s luncheon will also be held during the Festival.
A bake-off and auction will be held for the best rhubarb recipe.
The Festival will finish with a mini fair on Friday.
