Thousands of people came together at the Conargo Billabong Market to celebrate Mother’s Day on Sunday at Conargo Village.
Cars packed both sides of the highway and all around the Conargo Recreation Reserve as people poured through the gates on a beautiful, sunny day.
Children had a ball running around inside the giant Star Station worm, while parents strolled around the stalls to browse the huge variety of goods on offer, and stilt-walkers Belinda Dixon and Etoile Marley were eye-catching in their flowing, bright pink outfits.
Market committee member Lyn Hardcastle estimated about 4000 people attended the event.
‘‘It was a fantastic market with great weather and lots of people,’’ Ms Hardcastle said.
‘‘We had people visiting from Melbourne, Wagga, Coleambally and even Perth, and the stallholders were very busy all day.’’
Deniliquin’s Corinne Ellul won the lucky gate prize – a deluxe room for two at Cottages on Edward, Deniliquin.
The second prize of a $200 voucher from Aussie Wool Quilts went to Anne Corscadden, while Jill Howard won a signed copy of the Nonna to Nana cookbook.
