Chamber estimates 5000 at centenary
The Umina Beach Centenary celebrations were held on Sunday, October 12, with an estimated 5000 people in the main street of Umina.
"We had perfect weather and the perfect crowd," said Peninsula Chamber of Commerce president Mr Matthew Wales.
"There were street stalls, food outlets, pony rides, jazz band and plenty to celebrate after Umina has turned 100 years.
"All our retailers had a great day with thousands eating, celebrating and shopping in the town centre.
"Umina is a great retail centre and she showed off all her best attributes.
"We also had over 100 people come through the historic photo exhibition which is being held at the Ocean Beach Hotel.
"Our local historian, Julie Aitchison, has done a wonderful job collating hundreds of old photos and records to mark the 100-year anniversary of the first land subdivision in Umina Beach."
