Winterfest Wollondilly exceeded expectations with residents and visitors flocking to Picton to take advantage of all the winter warmer sales on offer at the local businesses.
Local musicians entertained shoppers with live performances at Sports Power, Hippy Luxe, Timeless Treasures, Gracious Lee and Picton Hotel.
The Winterfest Ice Skating proved popular with all sessions selling out over the 2 days, and 1750 people taking to the ice.
Mayor Cr Judith Hannan said “It was fantastic to see so many children laughing, smiling and having a great time. Council was mindful of costs and by using a synthetic ice skating rink we were able to provide an event that was affordable for all families.”
Local market stalls were held in the park while snow machines added to the festive feel.
The event wouldn’t have been possible without sponsorship from Glencore Tahmoor Underground, Picton Chamber of Commerce and Wollondilly Shire Council.
