Wickepin Winter Weekend 9 -11 June 2017

A number of caravan clubs including the West Coast Wags and The South West Wanderers also arrived to join in for the weekend. This brought the number of caravans at the Community Centre to around 80.  Visitors were from Geraldton, Albany, Perth, Newdegate and everywhere in between.

The Weekend consisted of an Old Time Dance on Friday with Campfire Country providing the music. Around 300 people spent the evening swinging around the Town Hall to a list of dances. Supper was provided by the crowd. Saturday included line-dancing and boot-scooting with Campfire Country and friends singing and playing. A number of line-dancing groups joined and taught the 200+ strong crowd some new dances during the day. Saturday evening was a Country Music concert with over 8 different musicians and a number of poets. The crowd again swelled to about 300 people. A wind-up session was held on Sunday morning. A few new dances were taught and Campfire Country again provided the music. A strong crowd of over 100 dancers took to the floor.

Those visiting and organising the event have all been enthusiastic about the weekend, the facilities on offer and the wonderful Wickepin Town Hall.

They have expressed an interest to hold the weekend again and this has been booked in for the 22 - 24 June 2018.
