Below Right: The very beautiful Victoria Park is a peaceful place to relax ,take a stroll or to hold a special function even a picnic on a lovely sunny day would be a treat.An example is the annual Carols By Candlelight which is organised by the Forbes Town Band and attracts a huge crowd and for the past 7years I have had the pleasure of performing the pre-carols program and MCing the evening.The year 2001 also saw the four federation concerts take place here.
