Bangalow’s annual Christmas Eve street party, always a drawcard, seemed even more popular given Sunday evening’s balmy weather.

And while there were many of the usual acts in attendance, including Byron Bay’s world famous Space Cowboy swallowing swords and juggling chainsaws, our award for ‘best newcomer’ went to bumbling magician but side-splitting comedian Ivana Drinkalot.

Ms Drinkalot, resplendent in a very brief, sparkly costume, managed to convince three big Bangalow blokes to don superhero costumes (one of them female) and help her ‘fly’ through the audience.

Soon after succeeding in this feat, she managed to retrieve the $100 note of one of them that she earlier led us to believe she had set fire to, much to the relief of the punters.
