The doors opened at 2pm and the crowds gathered in the town hall at 4pm for the latest trends from Sand’n’Salt boutique Lake Grace and Feet with Flair. The entertainment continued all afternoon/evening with live music from Hayden McGlinn and Danae Bairstow followed by the amazing Jonny Taylor playing late into the night with many dusting off their dancing shoes and showing their best dance moves!
It was a close contest for the second BBQ Masters Cooking Competition though the 2018 winners, Skye Beacall and Lyn Wilson went back to back, winning this year’s competition with their amazing Pork dish. Skye and Lyn took home the first prize of $500 thanks to Sentinel Finance Group, second prize, $300 donated by Isuzu was won by last minute team Jaime Knight and Peta Kuchel and third prize, also donated by Isuzu was $100 and awarded to the ‘Cranbrook Cooks’ Kristy and Beth – well done!
Not only did the annual event bring locals and community members from surrounding towns into the Dumbleyung Town Hall but this year over 100 caravans of the Caravan and Motorhome Club of Australia (CMCA) made Stubbs Park Oval home. Of the 100 vans over 160 people descended on the Taste of Dumbleyung, it was awesome to see the vans fill the oval and have so many tourists ‘taste’ a bit of what Dumbleyung offers.
A huge congratulations and well done to the DEC for pulling together another great community event! The event showcases the awesome community spirit of our Shire and all the wonderful local products and businesses we have on our back door step. Thank you and well done DEC!
