CONGRATULATIONS to Dubbo Regional Council and the committee on this year's DREAM Festival.
As part of the previous NSW Government, I was proud to be able to provide funding to the support the month-long event through Destination NSW's Flagship Event Program.
It was fantastic that the lantern parade could go ahead after being cancelled in 2020 and 2021 due to COVID-19 and again in 2022 because of rain, the streets were lined with people and Victoria Park was a buzz with great food, entertainment, and local stall holders.
Events like the DREAM Festival are what's so great about living in regional communities like ours.
