Locals had a great time at the St Michael's School fete.December 11, 2012 4:40am
Saturday’s soaring temperatures didn’t stop St Michael School fete goers from having a blast - or from raising money.
Organiser Fiona Waters said between $4000 to $5000 was raised for school resources.
‘‘We’re very happy with the day,’’ Mrs Waters said.
‘‘It’s a really good testament to the community and teachers; it was just a really positive day.’’
Young and old gathered for the reptile and pet shows and watched proud owners show off the skills of their animals.
Ben Cavallaro stole the show when he and his dog Buddy took to the stage to boast a new trick.
The six year-old managed to get his small dog to stand on two feet for an extended period.
The talented animal was even able to jump around while balancing, so it was no surprise that he won the award for best trick.
The slushy machine was also very popular, and there was a constant line-up for the mini go-karts, laser tag and giant slide.
More relaxing activities such as face painting, shopping at the market stalls and pony rides were also available.
Mrs Waters said they were ‘‘so grateful’’ to the support shown by the community.
She particularly wanted to thank Deniliquin’s Central IGA, Brown’s Rural Supplies, Deniliquin Veterinary Clinic, Deniliquin Rotary Club, Deniliquin’s police and firefighting services, Santa, parents and Wired Entertainment.
