Pros of keeping it simple at the Murgon Christmas Fair
ALTHOUGH the committee has been busy working all throughout the year, the Murgon Christmas Fair comes together easier than you might think.
Paul Pratt, a member of the fair's committee, believes it's a relatively simple event to plan if there are no drastic changes.
"Our first meeting was at least a few months back in relation to this year's fair, and we're keeping busy, but we find that if we're not changing the format on the day of the fair itself, it really comes together itself to a certain extent,” he said.
According to Mr Pratt, it helps when the fair uses the same vendors as previous years.
"We have regular food venders and stall holders that contact us now wanting to come. The rides tend to organise themselves, so it's not too hard to put together. We're really grateful that these vendors have the experience that makes it easier for us to manage,” he said.
"The vendors and ride controllers we've had over the years are also very reliable, so it's definitely a relief to us.”
As well as some regular food trucks and stalls, Mr Pratt said the committee has also found some new vendors for people to enjoy.
"A few new vendors have popped up, so we're really excited to give our guests some more variety,” he said.
Mr Pratt believes the new vendors are excited to be on board, too.
"Because it's such a big night, I think they all do fairly well out of it... and so we've had a lot of stalls contacting us, wanting to join in on the festive evening. People are really going to enjoy the range,” he said.
