Christmas carnival to go ahead
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.
