Leeton is a hive of activity at the moment as building owners in the main street begin works to repaint their facades as part of Council's Local Heritage grants recently awarded to successful applicants.
Soon, you will be able to learn more about the history of the buildings in our town while you are walking, as we roll out the installation of our first round of commemorative plaques, a collaborative project worked on in conjunction with the Leeton Family & Local History Inc.
Over the next two weeks you will start to see the town come alive with gold and black Art Deco Festival signage and branding, right through to the Narrandera Leeton Airport terminal windows, and if you love playing around with technology download the unified AR (Augmented Reality) app from The IOS App store or google play, and watch some of our printed collateral come to life!
Tickets for all events on the Australian Art Deco Festival program are available online, some events are free and we encourage the local community to jump online and take a look at what we have planned in the school holidays and to book in for their families and friends. Our ticket tip this week for locals is the Hundred at the Hydro Friday night the 12th of July.
Celebrate the 100th birthday of this iconic and beautiful building with us, we have fabulous live entertainment, food, and a casino coming, not to mention a murder mystery to solve for those Agatha Christie and Poirot fans among us.
