Sporting their best Hollywood poolside glamour, over 500 dancers hit the Bangalow Bowlo floorboards on Saturday once again for the annual Bay FM Christmas Boogie Fever Discotheque.

The event delivered eight of the best past and present Bay FM DJs representing disco and funk in all it forms.

A sense of Superstition about the four previous spectacular dance parties held, did not stop a whole new swag of punters with a new take on ’70s Hollywood poolside glamour strutting All Night Long.

Around 50 disco kids got a history lesson as they popped in early on Saturday afternoon for the inaugural Kids Christmas Disco – two hours of junior fun in search of the best dancer.

Everyone had a blast and much needed funds were raised, keeping Bay FM on-air serving our community and beyond.

Many  are already looking forward to next year’s event.

Today is International Day of People with Disability

This language trend around People With a Disability has tended to emphasise the disability rather than the person, which can lead to derogatory labelling, depersonalisation or impersonal, collective references.
