Look for fall wreaths across the county

Businesses and residents are invited to get into the spirit of the Macedon Ranges Autumn Festival (Sunday March 26 – Monday April 25) by entering the Autumn Wreath Giveaway.

The Council is offering $200 gift certificates from award-winning local business, Macedon Ranges Produce, as an incentive for local businesses and residents to hang a fall wreath on a storefront, front door or gate.

The Instagram giveaway asks entrants to post a photo of their fall wreath on display by Friday, April 4 for a chance to win.

A merchant and a resident will be drawn to each win a gift certificate for delicious local products.

Ms. Elona Jaeschke, Director of TCC Real Estate, said that as a major sponsor of the Fall Festival, we would like to encourage everyone to decorate our beautiful villages with wreaths.

“It offers a stunning welcome to visitors as they wander the streets and discover why autumn in the Macedon Ranges is so fantastic.”

As well as the Autumn Wreath Giveaway competition, there are a few other festival competitions exclusive to Macedon Ranges residents and businesses, including an amazing My Macedon Ranges Giveaway.

This giveaway encourages locals to share a beautiful fall image and comments on their favorite things to do in fall in the Macedon Ranges. Nominations can be emailed or posted on Instagram, following the instructions provided on the Council’s website.

One entrant will be drawn to win an incredible $600 Macedon Ranges experience, with prizes courtesy of Maiaveda Holistic Day Spa & Retreat, Big Tree Distillery, The Victoria Hotel, Woodend Ice Cream Co., Hanging Rock Reserve and Forest Glade Gardens.

Entries for the My Macedon Ranges competition are due Thursday 31st March.
