toga twist

The ancient Greeks and Romans knew how to have a good time and a group of revellers from Blackall in central-western Queensland took a leaf out of their book with a toga party to welcome in 2018.
Organised by the Barcoo Pastoral Society, the night saw plenty of tablecloths and sheets put to good use, all created with thanks to Pinterest and Wikipedia “how to” tip sheets. The styling highlighted the work-shirt tan of plenty of the men who got into costume, much to the delight of the female attendees who used the chance to dress up to good effect. Around 80 partygoers from as far as Brisbane, Toowoomba, Longreach and Barcaldine joined Blackall locals in sipping Champagne and feasting in fine style, thanks to Marmaladies Catering, and dancing out the last hours of the old year.
