Blackheathens and visitors took advantage of some lovely sunshine to enjoy the annual Rhododendron Festival on Saturday. New princess Amy Antaw was crowned before joining the grand parade. Afterwards, hundreds descended on Blackheath Gardens to check out the stalls while others enjoyed the entertainment program in Govetts Leap Road.
