Kingaroy’s annual Christmas Carnival morphed into a twilight markets on Thursday but that didn’t stop families coming out to enjoy a bit of festive fun.
It was same but different … no rides, but the Rotary ham wheel was spinning.
There were no visiting market stalls, but there were plenty of local groups taking advantage of the opportunity to show off their wares.
There was no dancing on stage, but there was still live music.
And, of course, there was still a giant raffle and Santa’s elves handing out lollies.
The Kingaroy Christmas Carnival Committee’s markets were held in the car park behind the Broadway Hotel in Glendon Street, a COVID-safe venue that could be cordoned off to control crowd numbers and with a defined entry point where names could be recorded.
But the one big difference about this year’s Kingaroy Christmas event? It didn’t rain!
