Heavy horses cart Christmas spirit around Yangan

CHRISTMAS came early for Yangan residents on Sunday, with the town celebrating the festive season with a day of free family fun.

Hosted by the Yangan and District Progress Association, the Christmas celebrations drew large crowds to the park.

Yangan and District Progress Association member Colin Pope said more than 50 children were there to meet Santa.

"It was a successful day. We had about 80 or 90 people as well as the 50 or so kids," he said.

Kevin Stow and Classic Kountry entertained the crowds.

There was also a sausage sizzle, games, races and a jumping castle. Mr Pope said the big drawcard was Mick Bradford's heavy horse rides.

"Volunteers from both the Yangan and District Progress Association and Yangan State School P&C worked well together to make the day a success," he said.

The Yangan and District Progress Association will now turn its attention to hosting an Australia Day celebration next year.

The group is looking at hosting a twilight event on Australia Day.
