Banana Jim & Sugar Sue
Banana Jim and Sugar Sue are the two Banana Festival mascots who have had a number of reincarnations over the years.
They will often be seen attending different events in the Tweed Valley, from Barefoot Bowls days through Fashion Parades to waving to visitors on the Murwillumbah bridge.

Unfortunately no sash for Jim at present.
Perhaps some kind sponsor may provide an advertising sash for Jim to wear. Any takers?
