MURGON pulled out all the stops for Christmas.

On Friday night, about 5000 rides were clocked up and almost all food stalls sold out at the Murgon Christmas Fair.

There was an appearance from Santa Claus, who proved to be popular, smiling for more than 200 photos. Murgon Business and Development Association's Paul Pratt said the event was on par with Christmas fairs of past years.

"The association would like to thank the business community of Murgon for their ongoing support of this highly successful event," he said.

"This is the business community's way of saying thank you for our customers' patronage for the past 12 months."

Mr Pratt said the fair would return for its 20th year in 2013.

"Without the community's continued support, this event would not be possible," he said.

"And the committee is hoping that this support will continue in the fair's 20th year to make it bigger and better than ever."

Mr Pratt said the Santa Grab for Cash promotion was also a success, with $1000 the highest cash prize.
