ORGANISERS of the Jumpers and Jazz Festival have hit a high note this week, as the good news keeps coming for the local event.

The festival is set to receive its own public relations specialist this year, thanks to a $25,000 grant from the State Government.

Lynn Bryson has been involved with Jumpers and Jazz since its very beginning.

She remembers the community's initial reaction to a festival with jumpers on trees.

"People thought we were a bit silly at first," she said.

But ten years after its creation, the festival is generating more hype than ever.

"I put programs out the front of my shop and I have to keep re-stocking them," Mrs Bryson said.

"Everyone's talking about the festival, which I think is a good thing."

Mrs Bryson continues to support Jumpers and Jazz this year, with her cafe/gift shop Bryson's Place hosting a range of events.

Bryson's Place is also designing an entry for the ever-popular tree jumper exhibition - a festival favourite of Mrs Bryson's.

"We've had all the staff involved in planning for months," she said.

"I love to see the look on people's faces when they see the trees."

Entries for the exhibition have filled in record time, with all spots taken by late May.

The Warwick Art Gallery has already received one booking for next year's festival.

There will be 112 decorated trees in the official exhibition, on display from July 19-27.
