What a sensational day!
Over 1400 visitors enjoyed Oatley's Music in the Park on Sunday 26 March. The clouds cleared just in time, and three of Sydney's favourite bands performed for a crowd that really knew how to get up and party.
The Music in the Park crowd also enjoyed a fine selection of meals including pork (on-the-spit) rolls, plus gelato ice cream and watermelon slices.
