August lights up in Walhalla
Walhalla Vinter Ljusfest has got off to a good start with many visitors returning after last year's cancellation.
The theme of historic town's festival of lights is 'Viva Walhalla', coming on the 40th anniversary of the death of Elvis Presley.
Russell Wright from the Walhalla & Mountain Rivers Tourism Association says attractions like live Elvis shows, the light train and ghost tours are filling up accommodation.
"We've seen some great numbers visiting the township and it's early days into the festival yet," said Russell, "but numbers are expected to grow as the month goes on."
"The accommodation providers are reporting very full bookings well into the month ahead."
