There was a Christmas Festival with Carols at 6.30pm held at Lakeland in the area opposite the General store, between the Lakeland Hotel Motel and the Lakeland Rainforest Caravan Park. It was a beautiful grassed area edged with shady trees and the market stalls were lined up along the outer rim. There was an Ice-cream stall, the Progress Association selling fruit, Printed T-shirts, Kathrina giving away Fire Fighting Spirit Books, Handmade jewellery, pot plants and an amazing lady dressed in striped yellow like a bumble bee with the most amazing display of bubbles that I have ever seen…and she was active in the full sun for the entire duration of the markets.
At 5pm. a fantastic Tongan team, workers at the local banana Farm put on this amazing display of Tongan Dancing. They were lively and full of energy and really enjoyed their dancing. Tongans placed money, and maybe notes, into their shirts causing the guys to laugh and giggle, and then a beautiful Tongan lady, covered in oil and flowers, did a dance and collected more money. I wondered whether people would press notes into my T-shirt when I walked around playing the ukulele, but I have to tell you no-one did. I did ask a couple why, and he replied it was because I was not covered in oil.. Good answer, Thank you…I was lucky to have 4 beautiful Japanese girls, also banana workers, join in singing and playing the Piano.. The Ukuleles and guitars sang Christmas Carols at 7pm..and everything was finished by 8.30. It was a well attended event and much enjoyed by the audience who waved electronic candles.
