Charleville holds dinner for Variety Bash
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?”
