What to expect at the Murgon Christmas Fair
PAUL Pratt believes the Murgon Christmas Fair committee has made an extra effort to keep rides affordable this Friday, December 14.
After all, the according to Mr Pratt, the rides are the most special part of the evening for the kids.
"From the child's point of view, they're always looking forward to the amusement rides. A part of the business house commitment is to care financially so that we can keep these rides priced at $5, whereas if you were to go to a show or that sort of event, you would often be paying double that,” Mr Pratt said.
They're not only doing this for the children, but also to the families who help keep businesses going in Murgon.
"We're trying to keep the rides and everything as affordable as possible, to thank locals for their patronage over the 12 months, that was the original idea of the fair. This is why the Business Houses of Murgon that are putting on the event for their customers,” Mr Pratt said.
When families show up to the event, there's a lot to look forward to for everyone.
"There's little merry-go-rounds, there's a big slide, there's rides there for all ages, and then your outside food vendors will come in with churros and chips for all to enjoy,” Mr Pratt said.
"The food range is plenty enough for families to come to dinner for. As well as the vendors, there are cafes in the Main Street will be open as well, and we'll also be having a couple of barbecues from some service clubs.”
Mr Pratt believes it's a great space for the service clubs to raise money.
"These barbecues are always a good idea because it gives the clubs an opportunity to raise money for their causes and organisations,” Mr Pratt said.
