There is $2200 up for grabs for schools who busk at the Narooma Busking Championship on the 26th May, 2018. Local busking champions, The Narooma Rhythm Hunters inspired the Rotary Club of Narooma’s Busking Committee to create separate categories for schools to enter and win fantastic prizes in 2018. And this is a positive move for other buskers as well because they are separate.
