The sky may have been alight with mother nature’s light show last Thursday evening, but at Twilight on Magnolia on Friday, there was little doubt the Yalumba Nursery Fireworks display was equally impressive. Friends and families gathered under the festoon lighting to kick start their weekend with live music, market stalls, carnival rides and the tempting delights of community food stalls.
The lively crowd at Faith Lutheran College wasted no time in attending to some pre-Christmas shopping, with the Year 11 Business and Enterprise class realising the profits for their chosen charity through their dedicated preparation in making and selling hair scrunchies, bath scrubs, homemade cookies, lollies, fairy floss and popcorn.
Art lovers escaped the festive buzz for a change of pace at the Year 12 Art Exhibition in the Barossa Arts & Convention Centre foyer. The diverse pieces inspired by topics such as identity, self-preservation, family connections and environmental conservation showcased the incredible talent of these students, culminating with the announcement of Caitlin Holt as the winner of the People’s Choice art award and Jayden Linke as the winner of the People’s Choice design award.
As twilight set in, attention turned to the College’s highly regarded musicians, entertaining the crowd with a diverse range of music genres from Jazz to Rock and modern day hits.
Congratulations to Walter Holmes who has ‘Jill the Cow’ to thank for being $500 richer as part of the College’s ‘Moo Poo’ fundraiser and all our Silent Auction winners and donors for their contribution to the College.
Twilight on Magnolia continues to stage a wonderful event, where fundraising and community groups, small businesses and families can come together and be thankful for the wonderful place in which we live.
