The annual Toolamba Twilight Festival was once again a success where the community enjoyed celebrating the festive season.
Celebrated on the last Sunday in November each year, this year was just as well attended as previous festivals, according to chairperson Laurie Thomson.
‘‘It was very successful; the weather was with us and it was well attended,’’ he said.
‘‘The children certainly used the amusements and kept us busy.’’
Organised by the Toolamba Lions Club, the community event provided an opportunity for the residents of the Toolamba district to come together, catch up and enjoy spending time with each other.
Mr Thomson said, as usual, Santa Claus on the fire truck didn’t disappoint, with children swamping him.
‘‘I don’t even think he had a chance to get off the truck,’’ he said.
He said they were happy with the numbers, with about 500 attending across the three-hour event. ‘‘As long as the community is happy, we’re happy; and I think they were very happy.’’ he said.
