■ A clear and balmy night set the scene for Onslow’s Christ­mas fes­tiv­i­ties last week­end as hun­dreds turned out for a meal and en­ter­tain­ment.

The evening be­gan qui­etly, but as the sun set fam­i­lies de­scended upon Town Oval to enjoy the fes­tiv­i­ties.

Santa dropped in to say hello, hand­ing out presents to all the chil­dren in at­ten­dance.

Shire of Onslow pres­i­dent Kerry White ad­dressed the crowd be­fore Libby Ham­mer Duo took to the stage play­ing Christ­mas­themed songs.

Bouncy cas­tles and arts and craft stalls were busy all evening.

Ear­lier in the day, five floats did a loop from the oval down the main street for the Onslow float pa­rade.

Only a hand­ful of res­i­dents came out onto the streets to watch, but those who did were show­ered with lol­lies.

The fol­low­ing day, an Onslow Pri­mary School fete was well at­tended, with V Swans Ash­bur­ton putting on a bar­be­cue break­fast and lo­cals putting their wares on dis­play for Christ­mas gifts.
