The traditional Easter Sunday in the Park has exceeded expectation this year, with organisers hailing the event as the ‘‘best one so far’’.
Deniliquin Baptist Church Pastor Heath Whiley said he was ‘‘chuffed’’ with the day, which attracted about 200 people.
The family event is a long-held tradition organised by the Baptist Church and boasted face painting, a barbecue, entertainment, jumping castle, a short family service, the popular Easter egg hunt and more.
‘‘It was fantastic,’’ Pastor Whiley said.
‘‘All our seating was filled and we’ve never done that before.
‘‘It was a great response from the community.’’
Pastor Whiley said it was a combination of the Blues & Roots Festival and a list of other events in town, as well as some new faces from Deniliquin, which made the event such a success.
‘‘We had lots of people in town and lots of people from the community who attended for the first time,’’ he said.
‘‘The Blues & Roots Festival definitely had an impact.
‘‘After a barbecue lunch, people just sat down on blankets and enjoyed the beautiful day.
‘‘It was a great community event and we were absolutely chuffed.’’
