Carnarvon had a lot to celebrate at the weekend, with more than 1000 people attending the town’s annual Christmas street party.

Robinson Street was filled with the Christmas spirit on Saturday as locals put the challenges of the year aside to enjoy an evening of family fun.

Guest of honour Santa made his grand entrance on a Harley-Davidson motorbike before giving out presents, generously donated by residents and businesses, to the children.

The popular event was almost cancelled last year because of the COVID pandemic, with 2021 also proving a difficult year as Carnarvon was hit hard by floods, a cyclone, high crime rates and the disappearance of Cleo Smith.

Locals are still riding the wave of elation in the wake of the four-year-old’s rescue, as life slowly goes back to normal for Cleo’s family.
