Proston traders opened their doors on Saturday night to welcome in late-night shoppers heading towards the new-look and relocated Christmas Carnival.
Families walking down Blake Street towards the carnival in Railway Park could stop into NB Inspirations, Proston Health and Beauty or Jacaranda Tea Rooms for a last-minute Chrissy present or a quick snack.
Down in the park, there was live music, children’s rides and games, stalls, a ham wheel as well as a licensed bar.
Santa Claus – who had been unable to make it to Hivesville on Friday night – made up for it in Proston, with a guest appearance near the old railway station building and plenty of lollies to go round.
Proston Lions, CWA, SES and Show Society volunteers were kept busy on various stalls and making certain everything was running smoothly.
The festival was sponsored by Proston Lions, Proston Men’s Shed, Smithfield Feedlot and the South Burnett Regional Council.
