A second entrant has come forward for the National Cherry Festival 2022 King and Queen Competition.

Brianna Long joined Kim Evers in this year’s crop of entrants, leaving plenty of space in the line-up for other contenders to step forward before the July 30 closing date.

Ms Long said she was excited to have confirmed her nomination for the competition and would be raising funds for the Young Mercy Care Centre, where she was employed as an allied health assistant.

“We are very fortunate to have a facility like the Mercy Care Centre which provides a wide range of nursing and therapies for people in the region,” Ms Long said.

Ms Long was raised in Young and she shares her competitor’s appreciation of the town’s harvest festival and the benefits of living in the Hilltops region.

With just a couple of weeks before entries close, it is hoped that more people living in the region will nominate for the 2022 Cherry King and Queen Competition.

There is an opportunity for candidates to promote the festival and region, help the community and enjoy new experiences.

Business owners supporting a nominated staff member have the opportunity to increase community engagement, while charities and not-for-profits receive a boost to their profile and a few more dollars for their organisation.

Find out more about the competition at or pick up an information pack at the Young Visitor Information Centre. The 2022 National Cherry Festival will be held from December 2 to 4.
