Marion Stuart's last Christmas hurrah as president of Dungog and District Chamber of Commerce went off without a hitch.
The Dowling Street Christmas Party was a street party that drew a crowd of about 100 to Dungog's main street with shop fronts and local organisations getting involved in the fun as well.
"I thought it was fantastic, the crowds were really good," Ms Stuart said.
"There were lots of local people and there were visitors as well which was really good. On the whole it was just a great community event."
Dowling Street's Christmas Party featured a street full of live music, stores displaying their wares under a Christmas theme and plenty of entertainment for children.
This entertainment was made possible after Brimble Rail decided to sponsor the event.
Ms Stuart saw the party as giving businesses a chance to show off what Dungog has to offer.
"All the businesses are all very enthusiastic about it. Everybody saw it as what it was, plenty of people out shopping. The whole community got together," Ms Stuart said.
The street party marked the last event for Ms Stuart as chamber president with Therese McIntyre stepping up and Ms Stuart taking the role of secretary.
Ms Stuart was blown away by the support that everyone in the chamber showed.
"I was really pleased to see it go off. It's a lot of work to bring it all together but we had a small team of enthusiastic people and it was really good to get some of the businesses from the main street involved in the organising and planning this time," she said.
However the highlight for Ms Stuart was the response from local schools.
"The schools bringing their choirs down and the amount of people that came down to watch the choirs perform," she said.
"The young Dungog High School Muso's, they didn't have much of a crowd because people had moved off then but they played for well over an hour which was lovely."
Ms Stuart hopes events like these will continue, seeing them as a great opportunity to boost the local economy and put Dungog in the spotlight.
