Coolum has once again proved that it is a world-champion community events supporter.
On Sunday, a multitude of families descended on the Coolum Kindy Spring Fair despite some heavyweight competition from the likes of the local soccer break-up, the Peregian markets, which held a spring wine and food fiesta as well, Festuri and the Gympie muster.
But the kindy mums and dads who have sweated on staging a successful street carnival all year were delighted with what was considered to be one of the best crowd roll-ups ever.
What else would you expect from a top-notch township that got right behind the champion Olympic torch relay in 2000, lines the street for Australia Day celebrations and packs out Anzac Day every year?
Kindy director Lorelle Frost said the day was “just fabulous”.
“The spring fair crowd couldn’t have been better,” Lorelle said.
“And we’d love to thank everyone for turning up and showing their support for providing a quality early education for the local children.”
The end result will be more than $10,000 banked and ready to be used for a range of resources at the not-for-profit centre.
The kindy would like to say a big thanks to the locals and the many business supporters who helped spring a great outing for Coolum.
