The time is here to enjoy the sights and sounds of the season to stir up Christmas joy as a magical and musical line-up of activities is taking place at the Pine Rivers Park on Sunday, the 15th of Dec 2019.
Listen – or join in! – as various local groups will be performing Christmas carols at the park. Beginning at 3:00 p.m., community and school choirs will be harmonising familiar holiday tunes that warm the heart and fill the air with the vibe of Christmas.
Pack a blanket for this event so you can set up on the best spot at the park while you watch the following talents perform on the stage:
|3:00 p.m.||The Ruby Reds and Friends|
|3:30 p.m.||Madeline Johns – The Jingles|
|4:40 p.m.||Pine Rivers Municipal Brass Band|
|5:10 p.m.||Thomas Armstrong – Robley & Dave: Home For Christmas|
|5:40 p.m.||Inversion Vocal Group|
|7:05 p.m.||Jodie-Joy and her Big Band|
The festivities will also feature Nickleby the Magician at 3:55 p.m. and the arrival of Santa Claus at 4:25 p.m.
Santa will be checking up on who is naughty or nice at the USC Santa’s Village, where there will be a life-sized snow globe and a gorgeous Christmas tree. Children of all ages are welcome to join at the craft activities or face painting sessions that will be set up at the event, whilst the little ones may play to their heart’s content at the jumping castle.
Since Santa’s a busy man at this time of the year, those who miss his visit can instead write a letter detailing your Christmas wish. There’s a Santa Mail corner at Santa’s Village.
Market stalls will be set up at the park for your last-minute Christmas gift shopping or food cravings. There’ll be much to do as some of the stalls will also carry out activities for visitors.
The Pine Rivers Park Christmas Carols is a free event although some fun rides require tickets to be purchased on-site. Additionally, there will be donation points for the Queensland Bushfire Appeal to support communities and workers impacted by the recent fires.
