PHOTOS: Village fun at Yandina Street Fair

THE smiles on the faces of Rory and Milo Hobbs were infectious as they donned firefighters' helmets and jumped aboard Lil Squirt at the Yandina Street Fair yesterday.

Although Lil Squirt, the promotional vehicle for the Rural Fire Brigade service, was a last-minute addition to the 37th annual street fair, he was popular with the young and the young-at-heart.

Early-morning clouds gave way to spectacular sunshine as a record 80 stallholders prepared to greet hundreds in the town's main street.

The fair had live music, great food, displays of karate, dance and the show-stopping Carlton Clydesdales, who pulled a carriage laden with kegs in their last Queensland appearance before heading back to Victoria.

The day was topped off by a spectacular fireworks show about 6.30pm.

Rory and Milo's mum Jane Little, a volunteer with the Starlight Rural Fire Brigade, said it was uplifting to be part of the gathering.

"Yandina is a fantastic community, full of history, fresh energy and old heritage. The boys have been ripped to spend the day here," she said.

Yandina Chamber of Commerce treasurer Pat Cordwell said the event was the main drawcard for the town.

"Businesses get a chance to promote themselves and community groups can harness the event as their major fundraiser for the year," she said.
