Peak Hill will once again be hosting a regional final of the Australian National Busking Championships, taking place this Saturday.

The Peak Hill Business and Tourism Association successfully secured the NSW regional final for a second year running.

Approximately 30 buskers will take part in six sections in Saturday’s final along Caswell Street from 9am to 4pm.

Prize money ranges from $1000 to $50.

Winners will be announced and have the opportunity to perform between 5pm and 7pm that afternoon at the Peak Hill Ex-Services Club.

The winners from the regional events will go on to compete in the national grand final in Cooma in November.

The regional event ran in Peak Hill for the first time last year, and the association hopes it will become an annual event.
