Christmas carnival goes off without a hitch

RAIN came and went yesterday afternoon clearing up in time for the Kingaroy Christmas carnival, unlike last year's washout.

South Burnett Regional Councillor Keith Campbell said he hadn't seen that number of people in Kingaroy and Haly Sts in a long time.

"My wife Marion and I were selling tickets from five to seven and it was a continuous stream of people and a lengthy line to join the entertainment," Cr Campbell said.

"The rain cleared up and it was a fabulous evening."

Cr Campbell said the committee had an enormous response from local businesses in Kingaroy to provide enough funds to put the carnival on.

"the support of the business community and the wonderful patronage of the people who came out and it was a clear fine night has enabled the committee to be in a really good position as far as finances are concerned to run next years carnival," he said
