HUGE GALLERY: 30+ Nanango Christmas Carnival photos

DROUGHT pressures were forgotten for the night as many gathered to celebrate Christmas in Nanango.

The Family Christmas Carnival was a big hit with free rides on the dodgem cars, giant slide and swing, a visit from Santa and stalls to browse through at Nanango's Pioneer Park on Friday, December 20.

Event organiser Gloria Kirkness was very happy with the turn out.

"Everybody is doing it tough these days, so it's great to have a good Christmas event," she said.

All of the rides and gifts from Santa were free thanks to sponsors Heritage Bank, South Burnett Regional Council and Ergon Energy.

"Everybody is really enjoying themselves," Ms Kirkness said.

The Nanango carnival team would love to get more stall holders at the event next year.
