Showground blossoms with 2016 Orange Blossom Festival

Talent, delicious cuisine and colour was on show as thousands gathered for the 2016 Orange Blossom Festival.

Among the activities were martial arts displays, skate-boarding, dancing and even dogs doing tricks.

It was also the first cohesive event to be held at Castle Hill Showground and brought together elements of the former Crestwood Fair, including its talent quest featuring the best young performers from the district.

Fairfax Media photographer Simon Bennett was there to capture some of the more colourful and fun moments.
