The proof is in the pudding at party
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.
