Christ­mas carnival to go ahead

Central and North Burnett Times - - RURAL UPDATE -

THE Christ­mas carnival will not be can­celled, thanks to sup­port from the community.

Af­ter an ar­ti­cle in this news­pa­per re­ported the fu­ture of the carnival was in doubt, many res­i­dents came for­ward to sup­port the Gayn­dah Christ­mas Carnival

Gayn­dah Cham­ber of Com­merce pres­i­dent Hugh McKid said it­was pleas­ing to see the community step in.

“It’s fan­tas­tic to fi­nally see this amount of sup­port from lo­cal res­i­dents and busi­nesses ... a big thank you to ev­ery­one who is help­ing or­gan­ise it,” he said.

“It­would have been sad not to have a Christ­mas carnival.”

A spe­cial Gayn­dah Cham­ber of Com­merce meet­ing was held last Mon­day and 14 community mem­bers be­gan or­gan­is­ing the event.

The Gayn­dah Christ­mas Carnival will be held on Fri­day, De­cem­ber 21, to avoid clashes with other events in the re­gion.

Cap­per St will be closed for the evening as stalls line the foot­paths and peo­ple stream into town to en­joy the Christ­mas spirit.

The Christ­mas Lights award win­ner will be an­nounced, as well as the Gayn­dah De­vel­op­ment As­so­cia- tion’s Cour­tesy Award win­ner.

“It will be a great night in town for the kids and fam­i­lies,” Mr McKid said.
