About 3000 people packed Moama's Kerrabee Soundshell on Saturday for a night of Christmas cheer for the whole family.December 17, 2012 4:00am
An estimated 3000 people packed Moama’s Kerrabee Soundshell on Saturday night for the biggest Christmas Spectacular yet.
Storms early in the day had organised concerned, but the clouds stayed away as local and imported performers entertained families well into the evening.
A fireworks display capped off the event.
Event co-ordinator Dylan Le Clerc of the Epicentre Church credited increased promotion and the event’s growing reputation within the community for record turnout.
‘‘This is the fourth event, so I just think that rapport with the community is building,’’ he said.
‘‘The community knows we put on a good show, and we also try to make sure we bring acts people know.’’
Headlining this year’s spectacular was 2011 X Factor runner-up Andrew Wishart, who Mr Le Clerc said enjoyed the evening as much as the crowd singing along.
The annual spectacular is organised through Echuca-Moama churches and made possible by sponsors and a team of about 60 volunteers, performers and helpers.
‘‘It’s such a good night you don’t want it to end, but at the same time you’re happy,’’ Mr Le Clerc said.
‘‘You’re happy the community enjoyed it; that’s why we do it.’’
