Moruya Mardi Gras Success A Credit To Community

The Moruya Business Chamber has thanked the community for the overwhelming support shown last weekend for the Moruya Mardi Gras and Riverlights that celebrated the town’s links to the Sydney Harbour Bridge that opened 90 years ago.

Chamber president Tim Dalrymple said the events on Saturday showed the strength of the Moruya district community and was a credit to the town.

“This was a real grass roots event, totally organised by volunteers and embraced by the whole community,” he said.

“There were 55 floats and groups in the Mardi Gras parade with thousands of people lining Church Street to cheer them on. The Riverlights display, the music and fireworks drew thousands to the banks of the Moruya River in the evening to top off this community celebration of all that is good about Moruya.”

Mr Dalrymple said two people deserved special mention for making the day such a success.

“Gary Traynor wrote to the business chamber a few months ago suggesting the 90 year anniversary of the bridge opening would be a great opportunity for the town to celebrate. Business chamber member Rob Pollock led the enthusiastic committee the chamber formed to organise the event and the success of the day is a testament to their work,” he said.

The business chamber plans to continue the Mardi Gras celebrations with the expectation it will happen every two years.
