Wedderburn Masquerade Ball 2018: Those that attended the Ball were treated to another fantastic evening of old time music by the famous Wedderburn Old Timers and Cheryl Bailey. Whether you dance or not, the band alone is worth the night out. We thank Cheryl, Glenda, Morrie and Adrian for their beautiful music over the past four years.
Some of this years Deb set were there practising their dances and looked lovely in their outfits and masks. We saw quite a few new faces this year, both local and visitors to the town. Everybody loves an excuse to dress up and this is possibly the sparkliest event in town with bejewelled dresses, such as Rebecca Buschmann’s beautiful blue gown, jewelled masks and jewelled table decorations.
Dede always ensures the night provides opportunities for those just learning and those who are proficient dancers, with dances ranging from the Tangoette and Marilyn right through to the Cheeseburger. Very popular are the line style dancers which saw virtually everyone on the dance floor. The evening is always fun with games, competitions and a huge country supper in the middle of the night to build up the energy to keep dancing till the end.
Visitors to this years dance enjoyed meeting local people and the relaxed atmosphere for which the dance in known. With a shortage of men to partner with, everyone just danced with everyone and the couple of visiting men were danced off their feet through out the night.
