Since 1975 Palmwoods State School students, teachers, parents and community members have worked together to present the Annual Country Fair. In 2010 this traditional school fete has grown into a major community event, attracting hundreds of people to the township of Palmwoods.
Visitors will be able to experience rides, hot food including curries, a coffee, tea and chai shop with homemade cakes and confectionary, arts and crafts, live music, a puppet storytelling session, nail art, face painting, show bags, herbs and plants, fresh produce stall and a trash and treasure stall. The highlight of the day will be the fireworks display sponsored by local company Turners Transport. The community commitment is further enhanced by major sponsors the Heritage Palmwoods Community Branch and Brady's Fruit Stall. Numerous small local businesses have contributed to the success of the Fair.
The Palmwoods State School P & C Vice President, Mr Richard Waldie said all proceeds from the fair are redirected back into school projects to provide a valued educational experience for students.
"We are all very excited about the fair. A lot of hard work goes into the organisation and preparation for this fair by a remarkable team of volunteers from parents and the community. We are looking forward to a terrific turn out."
"Everyone is excited about their role in preparing for the country fair stalls. The response has been great with parents volunteering to bake, sending in items for auction, donating plants and most importantly giving up their time to make this an unforgettable event for the community."
The Palmwoods State School Country Fair will be held on Saturday 22 May beginning at 2pm and finishing at 7pm with a fantastic fireworks display.
