Corowa Christmas Festival
“That’s important to hear because the economy is tight for a lot of families and it was really pertinent.”
Ms Fredericks said she was grateful for the endless amount of community support and effort from the events and chamber team to organise this year’s Christmas festival.
“We must acknowledge the Business Chamber and Events, Corowa Curtains, Federation Council, Rowena Black – she pulled the concert together – and all her wonderful musical students, Liz from the Royal Hotel brought up the pony rides and balloon man all for nothing which was seriously generous of her and the Corowa Football Netball Club for lending their tables and chairs.
“All of the local food providers as well, there were so many of them and all of the market stalls were great.
“Overall it was a fabulous experience, a really big team effort and it was a great way to kick off the Christmas season.”
The committee team has been working and meeting together every week for three months to organise and make the necessary phone calls to make the night happen, and Ms Fredericks couldn’t overstate how important it was for everyone to pull their weight.
The contributions from all local businesses and individuals who had an input in this year’s Sanger Street Christmas festival are no doubt largely thanked by the whole community.
