Monto set to party

Central and North Burnett Times - - ADVERTISING FEATURE -

Some­thing in Latin will travel from Gympie to pro­vide live en­ter­tain­ment at Monto’s street party on De­cem­ber 12. MONTO’S main street will come alive De­cem­ber 12 with the Monto Magic Christ­mas street party.

While in the past the an­nual street party also in­cluded late night shop­ping, this year busi­nesses will only open if they choose to, so store own­ers can also be part of the cel­e­bra­tions.

From 5pm un­til 10pm the main street will close to traf­fic, to make way for the range of en­ter­tain­ment set to guar­an­tee a fun-filled lead-up to the hol­i­day sea­son for the whole fam­ily.

Some­thing in Latin will come up from Gympie to keep the party rock­ing with live en­ter­tain­ment through­out the night.

They are known for play­ing a va­ri­ety of popular gen­res and were a hit when they came along to the Monto Dairy Fes­ti­val in Septem­ber .

Jumping cas­tles and ham wheels will keep the kids hav­ing fun, while a me­chan­i­cal bull spon­sored by the Grand Ho­tel will pro­vide a chal­lenge for all age groups.

But the real draw­card for the lit­tle ones, will be a visit from Fa­ther Christ­mas, who is ru­moured to be pop­ping in at some stage dur­ing the night.

There’s no need to worry about din­ner, as Apex will be along to cook up a bar­be­cue, and there will be a chance to fin­ish some Christ­mas shop­ping at the mar­kets.

Jeff Seeney and Goondicum Re­sources have both made gen­er­ous do­na­tions to the event.
