REDHEADS from across the region have united in Queen's Park.

Maryborough's proposal to host a Festival of Redheads has been listed as a finalist in Wotif's  festival competition. It's up against the Festival of snags in Mudgee, Festival of Mangos in Bowen and the Festival of Wheat, Wool and Wine at the Clare Valley.

Dozens of locals gathered around the rotunda about 5.30am this morning as a cross to Queens's Park was beamed across national television.  .

Dressed head to toe in red to match their fiery hair real redheads and people dressed in wigs or with hair sprayed for the day did Maryborough proud. 

 

And while the world's most famous redhead didn't make an appearance, Maryborough's own Prince Harry, Tim Holstein, was a great stand-in.

The Apt studios performer said he was happy to help support the redhead festival. 

So how can you help get Maryborough across the line?
