Predicted storms prompted the organisers of the annual Proston Christmas Carnival to shift the annual town celebration into Proston Community Hall on Saturday night.
Community groups had stalls in the hall, while residents took the opportunity to sit, enjoy a few drinks (the licensed bar was open) and chat.
Children weren’t forgotten, though … with a visit by Santa (who arrived on a ride-on mower!) plus ice creams, lollies and glow sticks courtesy of the Proston Men’s Shed.
Other sponsors included Proston Lions Club, South Burnett Regional Council, Hivesville Markets, the Proston Show Society and the Proston Round Table group.
CheeseWorld On The Move (Margaret and Gerry Gagel) and Mon-Dee Coffee 2 Go (Pat and Alan Eagleson) weren’t scared away by the prospect of rain, bringing along both their vans for the night.
In nearby Blake Street, NB Inspirations, the Jacaranda Tearooms and Proston Health & Beauty all opened for late night shopping from 5:00pm so Proston residents could catch up on some last-minute Christmas shopping.
