Nanango Christmas Race Meetintg
The Nanango Race Club will be holding their annual Nanango Christmas Race Meeting at the Lee Park Raceway off the D'Aguilar Highway just south of Nanango from 11:00am to around 5:00pm today. Today's races will have a "70s Flares And Big Hair" theme and everyone is encouraged to dress up in their best 1970s hats and/or accessories to be in the running for some great Moffatdale Ridge Fashions Of The Field prizes. The race club's popular Champagne@the Bit Bar will be serving up platters all day if you fancy a bite; a licensed bar and BBQ will be operating under the extended covered area; the race club canteen will be open for sit-down dining; children will be well catered for with face-painting and ice creams plus a visit from Santa Claus; and there'll be plenty of bookmakers and an on-course tote available in the betting ring to take your wagers. A lot of people like to use the Christmas race meeting for festive season parties and you're welcome to picnic on the lawns or even bring your own marquee if you like. This will be a 5 race meeting and buses will be running to the races from Kingaroy's Glendon Street Bus Depot (12:00 noon) and the Nanango RSL at 12:30pm. The first race will leave the barriers around 1:20pm but gates will open at 11:00am so go-getters can get a head start on that all-important socialising. Admission is just $10 for adults and $5 for pensioners (under-15s are free). Everyone is welcome! More details? Phone Rosemary on (07) 4163-2346 or email her.
Nanango Community Christmas Carols
Nanango's popular annual Community Christmas Carols will be held at the Nanango State School Auditorium in Burnett Street from 4:30pm to around 7:45pm this evening (carol singing starts around 6:00pm). There'll be community carol singing, candlelight and traditional carols as well as some fun Australian carols, along with amusements for children.

Everyone is welcome!
