Fair time for family

PLAN for a night of fun at the St Patrick’s Parish Fair.

Plenty has been packed into tonight’s fair to be held at the school grounds from 5.30pm, with loads of entertainment for all ages to have a great time.

Fair coordinator Francie Hartley said the fair boasted an amusement rides gallery and lots more activities.

“Grab an Aussie barbecue, Marist Hot Spud or Emerald Lion’s Club famous chips and settle in for a fun, family night,” Mr Hartley said.

“A crowd favourite is the dunking machine where students with a good arm get an opportunity to see their favourite teacher (or) local dunked.”

With trash and treasure, a mighty cent sale and sideshow games, you won’t know what to do first.

“Someone will be lucky enough to win the $2000 on Plotto Lotto, or $300 on Last One Standing.

“Prizes will also be won at the mammoth cent sale and Sputnik and… in the multidraw, which boasts over $2000 in prizes, including a giant doll-house, remote control transformer and much more.”

Besides fun, there would also be opportunities to grab a bargain, Francie said.

Christmas hams and gifts are still the focus, along with handcrafted Christmas decorations and lolly boxes.

And what fair would be complete without the all-time favourites – fairy floss, homemade sweets and cakes and face painting?

For cheaper rates on the amusement rides, pre-paid tickets can be purchased from St Patrick’s office for $27 or $30 if bought at the gate.

“It’s a great evening for reunions, grabbing a bargain, and having a fun, family night out.”
