Christmas Street Carnival '16
What an incredible evening! The weather was perfect, the street was alive with so much music and happy faces. A huge thank you to the Christmas Carnival Committee (Mark Burgunder, Colin and Lindel Kielly, Veronika Marinos, Luke Spittle, Tunja Cottle,  Brea Shaw, Deborah Hammond and Karen Shaw) for creating a truly memorable evening. 

We are pleased to say that the raffle was a great success and raised $2,300, which will be topped up by the Chamber to $2,500. This money will be going to the Maleny Neighbourhood Centre to help families in need. 

The Beard Competition was also a wonderful fun activity, and as a result the Maleny Soldiers Memorial Hospital will be receiving $1000.

Thank you to all those who participated and/or contributed to both events. We are truly grateful to have such an involved community.
Spectacular weather!
Family friendly games were set up throughout town.
The Salvation Army band played in the Riverside Centre.
The Artisan Markets featured awesome music, delicious food and even had a temporary Brouhaha Brewery stall selling locally made beers. 
The winner of the Best Decorated category for our Beard Competition.
The Community Centre was setup beautifully, allowing for both relaxed seating and space to dance.
