THERE was something for people of all ages at the Warwick West State School fete yesterday and for the first time in two years it did not rain.

Warwick West P&C committee member Tracy Vellacott was glad to see clear skies.

"It rained last year but we were able to bring it into the hall," she said. "Then the year before that it bucketed and we had to cancel it."

The fete ran a little differently this year starting with performances from the school choir and prep students followed by a dance piece from the year ones.

Among the attractions were bumper cars, face painting and pillow fighting.
