Bundanoon Winterfest 2018

Highlanders hit the dance floor for winter celebrations.

The annual Bundanoon Winterfest street party proved to be a huge hit on Railway Avenue on July 7.

People of all ages danced the night away to entertainers Angus Murray, Loki and crowd favourites, 19-Twenty.

Highlights included a synthetic ice skating rink, live entertainment and a wide variety of food and wine.

Winterfest conveyor Kaz Williams said she was proud of how smoothly the event ran.

“There was an amazing turnout of about 3,000 people,” Ms Williams said.

“It was a fabulous, warm and friendly crowd and everyone had a great time.”

Ms Williams said she was also pleased to see the support given to the surrounding Bundanoon businesses who received a lot of traction during the celebrations.

She said she learned a lot from the street party and was excited to extend Winterfest further in the upcoming years.

“I would love to get 19-Twenty and the ice rink back next year,” she said.

“It’s also a possibility that we could host the street party over a two-night period.

Ms Williams described the night as an all-rounder great experience.

“I loved seeing the kids out there having a great night,” she said.

“It was great to see the community out and about on a cold, winter night.”

Ms Williams said the street party was just the beginning to Winterfest.

“We have a week-long program of events so there is plenty to see and do to get out of the cold or into the cold,” she said.
