It was all there.

The "Pavilion" had displays of handicrafts, horticulture and cookery from the residents proudly on show.

"Machinery Alley" came to life thanks to members of the Military Brotherhood showing off their two and three wheeled machines and classic cars.

"Sideshow Alley" was a big hit with games like the toilet paper toss, paper fish fishing and skittles all giving out prizes.

 

 

Plus there were Cooinda Showbags, live entertainment and of course the food.

There were even volunteers on hand to direct visitors to available parking.

The petting zoo was also a big hit, with residents getting up close with all kinds of animals from cuddling kittens, puppies and guinea pigs, to petting sheep, a cow and even miniature horses.

Madam Zelda was on hand to tell fortunes and all of the staff and volunteers got into the spirit and dressed up in crazy and colourful costumes.

With all of the smiles and laughter, the event will likely be repeated again this time next year.
