Com­mu­nity comes out for fun in park

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

CHRIST­MAS in the Park 2012 was a re­sound­ing success and is set to be Mun­dub­bera’s com­mu­nity fes­tive sea­son event well into the fu­ture.

There was some­thing for ev­ery age group and an old Mun­dub­bera favourite, toad races, made its re­turn.

For many years the town cel­e­bra­tion was held in Lyons St, but last year Mun­dub­bera Kinder­garten took on the chal­lenge of or­gan­is­ing the event for the first time and changed the venue to Archer Park.

Or­gan­is­ers were over­whelmed with the sup­port and success of the first Christ­mas in the Park and de­cided to run with a sim­i­lar for­mat this year.

“It was a bril­liant evening and all in­volved with the kindy are so grate­ful to the spon­sors, the stall­hold­ers and the whole com­mu­nity who came out to sup­port us and have fun,” Mun­dub­bera Kinder­garten com­mit­tee mem­ber Kristy Townsend said.

When the toads were auc­tioned as part of the kinder­garten fundrais­ing Mayor Don Waugh bought one of the win­ners.

Just af­ter 8pm the an­nouncer ad­vised par­ents to find their chil­dren be­fore the lights went out in readi­ness for the fire­works.

Lo­cal stud cat­tle pro­ducer Clint Whi­taker said he was im­pressed by the fire­works.

“I’ve seen fire­works at lots of places when I ex­hibit my cat­tle, but th­ese tonight were fan­tas­tic,” he said.
