Street Parade 2011 - Fishers Ghost


This year South West Sydney Rockets had an amazing day of fun in the sun at this years Annual Fishers Ghost Street Parade festival held in Campbelltown this year.

For those of you who don’t know, Campbelltown has been celebration the Ghost of Fred Fisher in there Annual Festival for more than 50 years.
Almost four months after the mysterious disappearance of local farmer, Fred Fisher, in 1826 a strange occurrence took place in a local hotel. On that memorable night, a wealthy and respectable farmer, John Farley, stumbled into a local hotel in a state of shock claiming he had seen the ghost of Fred Fisher sitting on the rail of a bridge over a creek.
The ghost pointed to a paddock down the creek then faded away.
The body of Fred Fisher was later discovered in the paddock where the ghost had pointed and more than 100 years on Campbelltown still celebrates this tragic murder, neighbor George Worrall confessed to the murder during trial, and some say the ghost of Fred can still be seen sometimes sitting on the rail of the bridge overlooking the creek.

The Festival is celebrated every year with locals and visitors enjoying the attractions of the street parade, fireworks display carnival rides, sporting demos and music concerts, the two week event was a huge success this year and SWSR had an a great day out, celebrating after with drinks at our faviourtie drinking hole and sponsor "Bradbury Inn Hotel"
