The 2016 Wauchope Lasiandra Festival Program has hit the streets, so get ready to mark your calendars.

Organisers say there's something for everyone in this year's celebrations, which run from March 6 to 28.

Secretary Chrissy Jones said the 32nd annual Wauchope Lasiandra Festival will kick off with the Lasiandra Triples Womens Bowls Day at Wauchope Country Club on March 7.

On March 10, the CBD will come alive with purple people for the shopping and market day, which includes a competition for best staff costume, front window and premises displays.

On the same day there will be a Purple and Pink Day at Timbertown Childcare, Lasiandra Festival Fiesta at TG's Child Care and Lifeline will host a garden party with face painting, balloons, gardening and cupcakes at their shop in Cameron Street.

March 12 will see the Hastings Valley Miniature Railway Family Fun Day at Yippin Creek Reserve and Lasiandra Cup at Wauchope Greyhound Track that afternoon.

On the evening of March 12 there will also be a Lasiandra/Lifeline Rock 'n' Roll Dance at Wauchope Country Club, which is sure to be a sell-out.

As well as a great night of entertainment, there will be prizes for the best purple dressed, spot prizes and lucky door prizes.
