It was “smooth sailing” at the Tranquility at Twilight Fair as the Ocean Grove community came together for a day of family-friendly entertainment.

The event showcased food, music, markets, and entertainment from 4pm to 9pm on January 6 at Ocean Grove Park, with 73 available food and maker stalls.

Stall manager Bec Abram said she was “really happy” with the event and “couldn’t ask for better weather”.

“From the time that the gates opened, people just started filing in from a nice day at the beach and coming up for dinner and some entertainment,” she said.

“We changed a few things this year that made things easier for people to move around, including having more space in front of the stage for people to sit comfortably.

Ms Abram said the event’s bands, Mr Hyde, Brunette Red Dress, Tin Stars, Los Locos, and Geoff Achison and the Algo Rhythms, gave great performances on the day.

“All five artists did themselves proud and I think everybody enjoyed the different genres of music,” she said.

“A lot of people were happy with the entertainment. They loved every single one of the performances, and everything was unique with lots of different genres of music.”

Ms Abram said she was thankful for Nicholas Dacomb from Crazy Koala and the many volunteers who stepped in throughout the day to help with the event.

“We can’t do this without the volunteers, and the committee are amazing, with some members having run the Tranquility Fair since it started,” she said.

“Unfortunately, we didn’t have our kid’s amusement rides turn up as they broke down on the way, so Nick really stood up and helped us entertain the kids in the kids’ corner for the whole event.”
