There were 3 main components to/of the Carcoar Festival:  The Street Parade, the re-enactment at the bank, and the dance in the hall.
Ben Hall was played by a descendant of Ben, but Frank is unsure now if he was a grandson or great grandson. Spectators milled around Ben Hall outside the Bank so thickly that he couldn’t get off his horse to do the deed.
