Rotary Club of Camperdown president and event co-ordinator Pat Robertson was yesterday thrilled with the outcome, saying Rotary had taken over the duties from Advance Camperdown for the first time.

“There has been a steady stream of people right up until 3.30pm today,” she said yesterday.

The event, which has been held on and off for the past 40 years, featured a variety of family-friendly activities, including a street parade, market and local arts display.

The Crater Lake cake competition, a table-setting competition and historical wedding dress exhibition were weekend highlights, Mrs Robertson said.

Organisers and sponsors successfully promoted the festival as a community event, she said.

“There was participation from a lot of community groups.

“We would like to think that will encourage more groups to be involved in the future.”

Mrs Robertson said the Lakes and Craters committee, along with Rotary, were grateful to their sponsors and the community for supporting the event.
