All roads leads to gnome

 A feature of the fun at Glenbrook on Saturday will be old-fashioned bush picnic children’s  events on the centre arena.

‘‘This was what we did at  the original Rotary Australia Day Carnival in Glenbrook  in the mid-1990s,” planning committee chairman Geoff Vallance  said.

Australia Day at Glenbrook Park  regularly attracts 6-8000 to the village green atmosphere.

And up to 2000 gnomes are also expected to line up for the ninth annual Gnome Convention, with gnome carers  organising special costumes for the day.

Mr Vallance said other attractions were a revamped children’s area with story telling and creative art  and a special event to commemorate the bi-centenary of the first European crossing of the Blue Mountains.

‘‘We will start the day with the flag raising ceremony and invite families to visit the 150  stalls  and enjoy  musical entertainment and   children’s rides and amusements.
