 SWSR had a great time again at this years Annual Fishers Ghost Street Parade for 2013

 The Parade was awash with sunshine, with huge crowds and onlookers cheering on all the entrants and the girls and guys participating from SWSR !!

We cant wait to see the highlights ibn the local newspapers and have our fingers crossed on another win this year !!

Below and above are some pictures of SWSR enjoying the parade !!

For those of you who don’t know, Campbelltown has been celebrating the Ghost of Fred Fisher in its 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, neighbour 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.


Cant wait to see you all back again next year 
with a whole new theme !!
