My favourite part of Jacaranda is watching the scores of visitors come to Grafton and hold their hands out to catch our purple snow. Seeing the delight on their faces as the jacaranda blossoms float down into their palms, I realise the vision Henry Volkers must have had when he planted our beautiful avenues. To be an ambassador for the festival and our town is a great privilege. As a Junior Jacaranda Queen candidate I consider myself a custodian of the festival and look forward to the opportunity to help safeguard its future.

I love the unique history of The Jacaranda Festival, the hype and excitement it brings. Wonderful Jacaranda stories shared and many memories made. My favourite Jacaranda memory is the sense of community that arrives each year alongside the beautiful, blossoming trees and the smiling waving Queens. I am ecstatic to be a Junior Queen Candidate!

I love Jacaranda time! Since I was a little girl growing up in Grafton, my family has always attended the Jacaranda festival. In 2019 I went to the Queen Crowning and it really warmed my heart knowing that I could be a part of this tradition and make all my dreams come true. I am looking forward to attending the Caringa Ball and excited to see all the beautiful dresses, I will feel like a princess!

The Jacaranda Festival is one of my favourite times of the year! I love participating in the community events, such as Jacaranda Thursday and the Venetian Carnival.

I am looking forward to the opportunity to meet new people and being an ambassador for the festival this year. I am also excited for The Caringa Ball!

I became a Junior Jacaranda Queen Candidate because I enjoy helping people, making new friends and I like welcoming new people from all over to our town Grafton. My favourite Jacaranda event is the Caringa Ball as I Love getting dressed up, especially in the formal gown that my Great Nan created especially for me.

From the first time I was in Prince Street watching the Jacaranda floats and the amount of people from the community that were involved, I just knew this is something I wanted to do. We are very lucky to have such a fantastic opportunity to be a part of something so great. My family and I are involved every year and this is why it is so special to me. In the past I have watched the Queens and Princesses be crowned and I knew this was something I wanted to be a part of. I feel it would be a great opportunity for me to meet new friends, grow as a person and really embrace the jacaranda spirit! I am excited for the year ahead.

Jacaranda is my favourite time of year! Everything about the festival makes me so happy, the beautiful blossoms, the community spirit and all of the amazing events that are held. When I was five I attended my first Children's party and decided as soon as I was old enough I wanted to be a Junior Jacaranda Queen candidate.

I really like Jacaranda because of all the different types of celebrations that happen around our town during the Festival. I am looking forward to fundraising throughout the year and joining in all of the Jacaranda week activities with the other Junior Queen candidates.
