Crowds turn out at Monto

Central and North Burnett Times - - OUT & ABOUT -

LIZ Robert­son might not have a horse, but that didn’t stop her win­ning a buck­et­ful of horse care prod­ucts at Cash for a Cause in Monto on Satur­day.

“I just wanted to bid on some­thing,” she said.

“I do­nated it to some­one I knew with a horse.”

The evening raised nearly $5000 for BlazeAid, which was also a do­na­tor and bid­der at the event.

The next day Monto lo­cals and trav­ellers headed to the Ca­nia Easter Mar­kets.

Tess and Trevor Glee­son may not have done a roar­ing trade with their guinea-fowl, but be­lieved the birds had a lot of po­ten­tial.

“We have them to keep the snakes away,” Mrs Glee­son said.

“They are pretty lit­tle birds and they all have their own per­son­al­i­ties.”

Cakes, jams, pickles and a break­fast bar­be­cue served up by Anita Dent were a big hit at the colour­ful mar­kets, as was Ty­rone O’Reilly and his cir­cus tricks.
