FIRST stop Forbes, next stop Bathurst.
That's the weekend itinerary for TV weatherman James Tobin and the team from Channel 7's popular Sunrise program this weekend.
Tobin and the Sunrise team were in Forbes for several weather crosses on this morning's program and tomorrow they'll be visiting Bathurst.
It's expected they will be filming live crosses from Bathurst attractions including Machattie Park and the Australian Fossil and Mineral Museum, as well as giving viewers a feel for winter in Bathurst ahead of this year's Bathurst Winter Festival.
The fifth winter festival opens next Saturday, July 6 and opening night will feature the Ignite the Night market. Brew and Bite will be held a week later on Saturday, July 13.
This year's festival theme is 'Cosmic Paradise - a place of great happiness' and festival favourites will return again including the ice rink and giant ferris wheel.
And the popular two-storey carousel is set to make its return in 2019, after previously featuring in 2017.
The community is invited to join the Sunrise team in Machattie Park from 7am.
