“Local restaurants and shops were also busy, giving a boost to local businesses, benefiting from the increased foot traffic and the community atmosphere.”

“On behalf of Council I would like to thank the Platinum Sponsor, Mekong Mounties, and our Major Sponsors, Australian Chinese Buddhist Society, Bupa, Cabra Vale Diggers, Ettason, Optus, Peter Warren Automotive and Vodafone..

“Special thanks also to our supporting sponsors Central Equity, JerkyHouse, Innovate, Granville Place, Nestle, Royal Umbrella and Yin Kwee Trading.”
