Do you want a BAF! t-shirt? You can get one in two ways. One, you can buy one when our shop goes online. Two, you can VOLUNTEER to help out at the festival and we’ll give you one to say thanks. From runners to setter-upperers, info booth helpers to people to hand stuff out, it takes an army to run a festival, so why don’t you join ours? Drop me a line at media@Ballan.org.au to put your hand up. Just think - you could be as awesome as Kevin here if you try! #ballanautumnfestival #baf2020 #ballan #ballanautumnfestival20 #ballanautumn2020 #autumn #autumnfestival #victoria #ballanvictoria #victorian #victorians #BAF #BAF! #visitvictoria #victoriaaustralia #moorabool #mooraboolshire #ballarat #ballaratlife #ballaratlifestyle #ballaratfood #visitballarat #ballanAF2020 #baffettes ...
