Christmas In The Park

Nov 29, 2013
Christmas In The Park
The Sandgate & District Chamber of Commerce will this month host the 3rd Annual Christmas in the Park, at the Einbunpin Lagoon Parklands, Brighton Road, Sandgate on 7th December 2013.

The event is again generously sponsored by Councillor Victoria Newton and the Lord Mayor’s Suburban Initiative Fund, with the ‘Rise of the Guardians’ showing on a massive outdoor screen from 7pm. This PG rated action adventure animation follows the story of the immortal Guardians joining forces against an evil spirit to protect the hopes, beliefs, and imaginations of children all over the world.

Join in the pre-movie festivities where children can enjoy a jumping castle, scale a rock wall or have their face painted with Apex, prior to sponsor Kerry Millard MP lighting the Christmas Tree at 6:45pm.

Community group stalls again play a significant part of the event, providing food and entertainment from 4pm. Your Farm will serve a variety of salads and chai tea, with all proceeds going towards supporting the not-for-

profit group’s support for local food production and organic farming practices.

The Sandgate Men’s Shed BBQ fundraiser is available on the night, as is a hot brew from Coffee On The Go. Those wtith a sweet tooth have dessert catered for thanks to Lions Club cakes, with children anticipating a visit from Santa in his sleigh.

The Sandgate PCYC will have their Mobile Entertainment Recreation Vehicle (MERV) available with three electronic games ready to play, and the districts Crime Prevention Unit will be handing out information.

Thanks to other sponsors of the 2013 Christmas in the Park; The Bayside Star,, Shorncliffe Potters Club, Safe and Sure Electricians and Mother Duck Bracken Ridge Childcare and Pre-School Centre.

The alternative location in the event of bad weather is the Sandgate PCYC on Kempster Street. Bring a comfortable chair or a picnic blanket and enjoy a meal under the stars before the film. Come and join in the fun!
