Tatura was buzzing at the weekend as the Lions Club hosted the second annual Tatfest at Mactier Gardens.
‘‘We were overwhelmed with the support,’’ Tatura Lions Club member Doug Tuhan said.
‘‘We had 1400 people last year and about 1600 this year. While we get numbers like this we’ll run the event every year.’’
The family-friendly event had more than 30 storeholders, a dozen children’s activities and musicians playing tunes on Sunday afternoon.
‘‘We learnt a bit last year and changed a few things around. People come from all over and around the state,’’ Mr Tuhan said.
‘‘The animal nursery was a big one for the kids, plus for the adults as well if they were being honest. Most of the food outlets did a big trade, including those from Melbourne.’’
Mr Tuhan said profits from the event would go towards Moyola Lodge’s efforts to buy a bus to take residents out and about on day trips.
‘‘We hope to give them $10000. Fifteen or so volunteers put on this event, but it wouldn’t have been possible without our major sponsor Tatura Milk,’’ he said.
‘‘Thanks for their support and we hope to see everybody back again next year.’’
