LONGERENONG’S annual ball at the weekend attracted people from every state in Australia.

Horsham Apex Club runs the Longy Seeders and Strippers Ball, and donates money raised to Wimmera community groups.

Ball organiser Ben Consedine said the event went off without a hitch.

“We haven't got final crowd numbers yet – we won’t have them for a few days – but it was a great crowd,” he said.

“Everyone was very well behaved.

“We had people travel from Queensland, the Northern Territory and Western Australia – they came from everywhere.

“A lot of them commented on the bands – we had some pretty big-name acts this year.”

Country singer Travis Collins – who won multiple Golden Guitars at this year’s Country Music Awards – headlined the event.

“Travis is the king of country music at the moment,” Mr Consedine said.

“We also had Liam Brew perform.

“It was a big afternoon because the weather was so nice, and the atmosphere was great in the car park.

“Things wrapped up about 12.30am, and everyone started heading off again after breakfast on Sunday morning.”
