EASTER was cel­e­brated at the an­nual Woodgate fair, with thou­sands of peo­ple en­joy­ing the great weather and ex­cite­ment of the mar­kets.

Visi­tors made the most of the long week­end by fill­ing all camp­ing grounds, ho­tels and mo­tels around town.

It was a strug­gle to find a car park near the mar­kets as fam­i­lies were left to park in the side streets of Woodgate.

Event or­gan­is­ers took to so­cial me­dia en­cour­ag­ing lo­cals and visi­tors to Woodgate over the week­end.

Woodgate Com­mu­nity Events vol­un­teer Daphne Bret­tell said it was one of the big­gest Easter events around the re­gion and each year the event con­tin­ued to grow.

“The ear­lier sprin­kle of rain didn’t stop fam­i­lies from strolling around en­joy­ing all the tasty treats,” Mrs Bret­tell said.

Woodgate Com­mu­nity Events or­gan­is­ers had been busy lead­ing up to the long week­end as there had been more in­ter­est from stall hold­ers.

“We have re­ceived great sup­port from the coun­cil and the Woodgate com­mu­nity,” she said.

“Ev­ery year the event is grow­ing and we hope it con­tin­ues to get big­ger.

“It’s a long day for the or­gan­is­ers and vol­un­teers, but it is all worth it when you see the smil­ing faces,” she said.
