Ready, set, yarnbomb!

IN A stroke of genius a new quirky competition to match our quirky winter festival has been launched for the 2012 Jumpers and Jazz.

The yarn-bombed bicycle competition will see all entries paraded on Sunday, July 22 in front of the Warwick Town Hall at 11am.

Warwick Tourism and Events CEO Tracy Vellacott said there would be something for all ages.

"There are three categories - kindergarten to Year 2, Year 3 to Year 7, and open," she said.

"There is a $50 cash prize for first place in each category with a gold coin entry fee will be collected on the day."

Warwick Art Gallery volunteer Pat Benkendorff said she hoped the new activity would take off.

"We have a few entires so far and it should be something good for the kids to do," she said.

"Anyone who wants more to enter should contact the Warwick Art Gallery."
