It’s beginning to feel a lot like...
The countdown has begun for the annual North Brisbane Salvation Army Community Christmas Party.
The Christmas celebration event and Carols on the Lawn will be held on Sunday 9 December from 4pm at Taigum, with bucket-loads of family entertainment on offer.
Event co-organiser Beck Head says the event – described as “the biggest Christmas party” – has been a community fixture on the North Brisbane calendar for many years.
“I have been involved in the event for the last seven years or so, and it has been going in one form or another for much longer than that,” Beck said.
She said there was something for everyone at the event, which usually attracts around 3,000 people.
“We’ve got hands-on activities, pony rides, cupcake decorating, fairy floss, animals to pat and heaps more. Santa will be there for free photos. If you have a Santa picture taken, we will also email it to you for free.”
Beck mentions that the key drawcard for the event is that all of the activities are free, thanks to the generosity of event sponsors.
“The Salvation Army wants to bless the community at a time when, for many, money is tight.”
The rides and other attractions will be open from 4-7pm, and will be followed by Carols on the Lawn.
The night’s musical line-up will feature classic Christmas carols, as well as other contemporary and festive numbers. This year, the amazing Revelation Big Band is back to entertain the crowd in the afternoon, followed by the Salvation Army who will perform all the favourite Christmas songs.
The community is encouraged to bring along outdoor chairs and blankets, and settle in for the annual celebration. For more information, you can find the Christmas Celebration at North Brisbane Salvation Army on Facebook.
