The proof is in the pud­ding at party

Dalby Herald - - NEWS -

THE town cen­tre filled with peo­ple on Thurs­day night as the an­nual Dalby Christ­mas Street Party brought Cun­ning­ham street to life.

Kick­ing off around 5pm, the evening un­folded with mu­sic from Dalby South State School, a pa­rade, con­tests, food, stalls and more.

The heat was on at the Christ­mas cake bake off and, af­ter much de­lib­er­a­tion among the four judges, O’Shea’s Wind­sor Ho­tel was de­clared the win­ner.

The brains be­hind the cake, head chef Kyle Eyres said the trick was in the rum.

“That’s what all the old great-grand­moth­ers used to cook it with, so I’m a firm be­liever of heaps of rum in a Christ­mas cake.”

Pres­i­dent of the Dalby Cham­ber of Com­merce Ro­han May said the event at­tracted “north of six or seven hun­dred” peo­ple to Cun­ning­ham Street.

“It’s im­por­tant we re­mem­ber to cel­e­brate Christ­mas and to cel­e­brate our traders in the main street,” he said.

“We were so pleased that Dalby came out in force to cel­e­brate with us.”

The Street Party is an ini­tia­tive of the Dalby Cham­ber of Com­merce.
