Kumbia residents had a genuinely Mickey Mouse* time at the town’s annual Christmas celebrations on Sunday night.
There were plenty of smiles as Mickey and Minnie wandered the crowd.
And there were also mouse ears aplenty on many of the youngsters (the ears were handed out as all-night “tickets” to access the jumping castle and slippery slide).
But the famous mice weren’t the only celebrities to drop in; Santa also took time out of his busy pre-Christmas Eve schedule to stop by and meet the children.
Visitors had been invited to dress as their favourite Disney characters, which meant a few of the adults also sprouted mouse ears.
The annual Kumbia Christmas celebration also featured its famous barbecue of local sausages as well as market stalls, music, Christmas trees, raffles and a busy ham wheel.
What more could you want for Christmas?
* Footnote. In Aussie slang, “Mickey Mouse” is rhyming slang for “grouse”, ie. extra good. Confusingly, in American English, it means the exact opposite.
