Sun shines on Meeniyan
THE weather was fine and crowds filled the street during the Meeniyan on Fire festival on Saturday.
An estimated 2500 people made their way around Meeniyan’s town centre finding out what the town has to offer.
All businesses became involved, many with street stalls, outside displays and giveaways.
Radio 3GG was broadcasting live from the main street while live music from various acts played on the steps of the hall.
There was plenty of fun for the whole family with face painting, mini-golf, a jumping castle and an abseiling wall.
President of the Meeniyan Tourism and Traders Association Marty Thomas said the day was fantastic.
“Everything went great guns,” he said.
“Everyone is thoroughly happy with the day.”
Thanks to this success Meeniyan on Fire will now certainly become an annual event.
“The day was a good as can be. It will now be a yearly festival,” Mr Thomas said.
The traders association would like to thank committee members and community groups involved for their support in the preparation and the lead-up, and the Meeniyan community for its ongoing support.
