Queensland State Election
The Queensland State elections are being held today and all enrolled voters in the South Burnett are required to cast a vote for their chosen candidate in either the Nanango or Callide electorates (depending on where they live). Polling booths will be open in their usual locations all around the region from 8:00am to 6:00pm and some mobile polling booths will also be in operation. In Nanango, voters can get to choose between the LNP's sitting member Deb Frecklington, the ALP's Ben Rankin, the Greens' John Harbison or One Nation's Douglas Grant. And in Callide, the choice will be between the LNP's Colin Boyce, the ALP's Darren Blackwood, the Greens' Jaiben Baker or One Nation's Sharon Lohse. As always, from later this afternoon you'll be able to get live results from these two electorates - as well as the overall State totals - through the links that will appear on South Burnett Online's front page.
Kingaroy Dance Academy End of Year Concert
The Kingaroy Dance Academy will be holding its end of year concert at Kingaroy Town Hall in Glendon Street, Kingaroy from 6:30pm to around 9:00pm tonight. The first half of the production will take guests on a swashbuckling adventure with a dance-focussed rendition of "Peter Pan". And in the second half of the production, KDA students will showcase a variety of dance pieces in "Around the World". KDA's USA tour team will also be giving the audience a sneak peek of their Disneyland performance routine on the night. The KDA's end of year concert is always a fantastic evening out, and tickets can be booked online from November 4.

Gympie Regional Council will be staging a free screening of the Disney feature "Pete's Dragon" at the Kilkivan Swimming Pool at Lot 16, Council Street (inside Kilkivan State School) at 7:00pm tonight. Food and drinks will be available for purchase and everyone is welcome!
Wondai Country Markets
The Wondai Regional Art Gallery's popular monthly Wondai Country Markets will be operating at Coronation Park in Wondai's CBD from 7:00am to 12:00 noon today. Today's markets will feature stallholders selling fresh fruit and vegetables, arts and crafts, useful knick-knacks and clothing. There'll also be live entertainment; lots and lots of other stalls selling great gifts and goodies; and special hand-made treasures from local artisans available from the Gallery's new "Studio" building just a short stroll across the park. The Wondai Kindergarten's BBQs will also be firing up from 6:45am to dish out hearty breakfasts to early bargain hunters. New stallholders are always very welcome (stall fees range from $10 with power and water available, if needed) and you can obtain more details by phoning the Gallery on (07) 4168-5926 or by emailing them
Ringsfield Cafe Official Opening - Nanango
Ringsfield Cafe at 41-45 Alfred Street, Nanango will be holding its official reopening between 9:00am and 5:00pm today. Ringsfield and its cafe were closed between April and mid-November to allow the building to be transferred from its former operators (the Nanango Historical Society) back to the Council, and for as new operator to be found. Ringsfield will also begin offering an evening dinner service from November 29. More details? Phone the cafe on (07) 4163-3345.

Jungle Juice - Kingaroy
The South Burnett Musical Comedy Society will be presenting the final performance of their new theatre-restaurant show "Jungle Juice" at the Senior Citizens Centre in Avoca Street, Kingaroy (opposite SupaIGA) at 7:00pm tonight. Jungle Juice tells the story of a plane carrying two rock stars and a reporter that crashes on an island which has a severe man shortage. The result is a zany tropical cocktail of melodrama and music, somewhere between Brigadoon and The Gods Must be Crazy. Tickets to the show - which include a two course dinner - are $40 and need to be booked online. UPDATE: By popular demand, there'll now also be a matinee performance at SBCare at 12:30pm, offering lunch and dessert instead of dinner and dessert.

Stride4Stroke Community Fun Walk - Murgon
A Stride4stroke Community Fun Walk in aid of the Stroke Foundation will be held along the South Burnett Rail Trail this morning, departing from the Murgon Men's Shed (aka Murgon Railway Station) at 8:00am and proceeding to Barambah Creek and back. Stride4Stroke is the Stroke Foundation's annual campaign to raise much needed funds and awareness to prevent, treat and beat stroke. Sadly, almost half of all Australian adults and almost 80 per cent of children arenít doing enough physical activity, putting them at unnecessary risk of stroke. Taking part in the Stride4stroke Community Fun Walk is a great way to keep active while raising money for an important cause. Entry fees are a gold coin donation and there'll be a lucky prize draw and a sausage sizzle/brunch available; BYO hat, plenty of water and wear sunscreen. Everyone is welcome!
