Helen Morritt, Pat Patt and Bill McDonald are keen to throw a memorable Toolamba Twilight Festival full of food and fun for families.

The Toolamba Lions Club Twilight Festival committee could be mistaken for Santa’s elves.

The group has been busy preparing for the annual Toolamba Twilight Festival and no task is too big for the capable team, which is keen to make the event as memorable as possible.

Festival committee treasurer Helen Morritt said the festival was in its 10th year and continued to attract a good crowd.

‘‘The Lions Club decided the Toolamba community should have a get-together and we made it into a festival,’’ she said.

Toolamba Lions Club member Bill McDonald said there would be many free activities at the festival that families could enjoy and there would even be a visit from Santa.

Mr McDonald said pedal cars had been added to the festival to complement established attractions such as zorb balls, sumo wrestling and vintage engines.

‘‘The Lions Club of Dookie will be bringing their train out for children to ride on and the majority of these are all free activities — the food they will pay for, obviously, but everything else is basically free,’’ he said.

The festival will also include a barbecue and a cafe to feast at and face painting for children.

‘‘I think it’s a great community get-together,’’ Mr McDonald said.

‘‘We end up with not just the local community, but people from Shepparton, Tatura and the surrounding district.’’

The Toolamba Twilight Festival will be on November 25 from 5pm at the Toolamba Recreation Reserve, Wren St, Toolamba. The festival is free to attend.
