Out and about at the Spring Fair

NANANGO residents welcomed the new season by enjoying a morning out at the Nanango Spring Fair.

Children and adults enjoyed the challenge of entering in the various competitions from the best spring hat or bike, to cake, lego and flower creations on Saturday October 27.

The fair, held at the Nanango Anglican Parish church grounds, coincided with the monthly mini markets.

Market organiser Tanya Fitzsimons said they decided to resurrect the spring fair which had run in Nanango many years ago.

"It makes it worthwhile for the kids to do something with their lego, biscuits and spring hats,” she said.

Since the monthly mini-markets started, the church's op shop has increased its intake on market days.

"It's all about making people aware of the markets here and the op shop,” Mrs Fitzsimons said.

Alex Fitzsimons won first place in the spring hat junior competition, Skye Wilson was awarded second place and Harper Fitzsimons won third place.

In the rose competition, Sandra Ehrlich won the best single rose and Davina Holmes won second place.

The Nanango mini-markets are run in the last Saturday of every month, with stall holders charge $5 for the day.
