Magnolia Fare goes off with a bang

This year’s Magnolia Fare was full to the brim with food, show rides, entertainment, fireworks and more on Friday night.

Opening the Fare, at Faith Lutheran College, Tanunda was local indigenous elder, Mr Ivan Copley who gave a welcome to country and traditional smoking ceremony. 

Ivan had previously opened Faith Lutheran College’s indigenous garden.

Throughout the night 18 different music groups from the school showed off their skills on the main stage. 

Director of Community Relations for Faith Lutheran College, Ms Linda Parbs said that all attendees loved the music. 

“The talent on the main stage was just incredible,” she said.

Amongst the groups were jazz and rock ensembles, solo vocalists and acapella groups.

“There was such a great atmosphere around the music, the students were so supportive of one another,” said Linda.

The night’s food, inspired by countries all around the world, was a big hit, with numerous items selling out. 

Donuts, sushi, baked goods, pork rolls, kranskys, hot dogs and more were available. 

Gavin and Sherinne Schuster donated numerous pigs that were slow cooked by Mr Mark Rosenzweig.

Year 12 students, Lilly Beer-Price and Sophie Hilditch had a baked goods stand, while another student, Talia Green set up a Henna stall.

In the lead up to the event year 10 and 11 students baked goodies for the cake stall, including the popular honey biscuits.

Linda explained that the whole school got involved in preparations for the event. 

Theatre Tech students spent numerous days setting up the lighting, main stage and PA system while the bands spent many hours practicing their pieces.
