One Long Ta­ble of mul­ti­cul­tural de­lights

Balonne Beacon - - BEST OF THE WEST - Jes­sica Schrem­mer

A CULI­NARY feast and cul­tural per­for­mances de­lighted the senses of more than 2000 peo­ple who flocked to Heeney Street for Chin­chilla’s One Long Ta­ble at the week­end.

Chin­chilla trans­formed into a mul­ti­cul­tural hub on Satur­day night when 30 food stalls lined the main street serv­ing up global de­lights, while a bustling kids ac­tiv­ity area en­sured chil­dren’s spir­its soared.

Chin­chilla Com­mu­nity Com­merce and In­dus­try Inc (CCCI) event co-or­di­na­tor Gaye Smith said it was a fan­tas­tic and very suc­cess­ful event.

“The event showed great com­mu­nity in­volve­ment and sup­port,” she said.

“It was a joint ef­fort by the com­mu­nity.

“On the night we had over 70 vol­un­teers from lo­cal busi­nesses and peo­ple in the com­mu­nity, all do­ing an out­stand­ing and enor­mous job.

“It was great to see a lot of fam­i­lies go home at the end of the night with big smiles on their faces.”

Ms Smith said a big thank you to One Long Ta­ble Com­mit­tee chair­man Ro­han Wood­forth, who brought the whole event to­gether to make it suc­cess­ful.

She thanked all the spon­sors for their sup­port and said she was al­ready look­ing for­ward to the next One Long Ta­ble.
