Charleville holds din­ner for Va­ri­ety Bash

Western Times - - NEWS -

OVER 300 trav­ellers on the Va­ri­ety Bash trail stopped into the Charleville Show­grounds for a feed and a well-earned rest on Fri­day night.

The event, or­gan­ised by the Mur­weh Shire Coun­cil in con­junc­tion with the St Mary’s P and S As­so­ci­a­tion, pro­vided the weary driv­ers with a tasty, two-course meal, com­plete with pavlova and cheese­cake, along with qual­ity en­ter­tain­ment and a com­fort­able place to roll out a swag.

The guests in­vited and pre­sented a lo­cal fam­ily with a do­na­tion, keep­ing in line with the val­ues of the event.

Lo­cal band Stew­bacca and the Wook­ies then took to the stage to play the coun­try clas­sics, draw­ing the driv­ers to the dance floor for a quick boo­gie.

The driv­ers camped out at the show­grounds overnight, and were pro­vided a hot break­fast in the morn­ing be­fore they con­tin­ued their drive to their next des­ti­na­tion, Blackall. Mur­weh Shire Coun­cil events co-or­di­na­tor Monique Johnson said the event ran with­out a hitch.

“Our mayor came and wel­comed the driv­ers to Charleville,” she said.

“The lo­ca­tion was per­fect, we had ev­ery­thing in one spot. What more could you want?”
