Mayor Tom Kennedy has congratulated event organisers and the local community after a massive month of entertainment in Broken Hill.


April saw the staging of the Heritage Festival, along with the arrival of the inaugural Mundi Mundi Bash and fringe events.


Thousands flocked to the city to enjoy the array of entertainment, providing a welcome boost to the local economy and furthering the city's reputation as a prime tourist destination.


Mayor Tom Kennedy said a round of thanks were in order, with both events ensuring visitors had a great time in the city.


"Credit must go to Greg Donovan and the Mundi Mundi Bash team for creating such an amazing event, the logistics behind it were absolutely staggering and they pulled it off flawlessly," said Mayor Kennedy.


"The Council staff, performers, and contractors that executed the Heritage Festival and Fringe should also be commended, it complemented the Bash perfectly and gave a great insight into the city's history."


Mayor Kennedy said the role of locals and business owners throughout the month of April was equally important.


"I was really impressed with the amount of businesses that went above and beyond to ensure visitors were looked after, and by all reports they were rewarded for their effort with very strong trade," he said.


"And to all the locals that volunteered or just made our visitors feel welcome, thank you so much, I believe the positive word-of-mouth regarding our community will spread far and wide from the events of the past few weeks."
