Lions festival success
HUNDRED of people lined the streets of Dimbulah on the weekend to celebrate the annual Dimbulah Lions Festival.
This year’s events saw the very first Charity Prince and Princess crowning, with the youngest generation of Dimbulah locals raising over $19 351 through raffles for the event – the highest ever raised for the festival.
This year, Alana Roy was crowned the inaugural Charity Princess, alongside Mac Sivyer who was crowned prince.
Runner up for the event was Holly Withers.
Dimbulah Lions Club presi-dent Brendan Goldsworthy said the event was a huge and extended his thanks to the sup-port of the community who got involved.
“It was a really good night, was really well attended with great weather and great enter-tainment,” he said.
“The street parade is always a highlight with great float en-tries this year – you could really see the effort put into them.
“We really appreciate the support of all the locals who attended and who bought raffle tickets and all that money raised will go back into the community through donations and projects.”
All of the inaugural princess and prince entrants, performers and supporters were thanked by the local Lions Club.
