Cr OPray - At Play with OPray
  • Friday 05 December 2014

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! There are so many wonderful family-friendly events on right across the Coast this summer, starting with Carols at Cotton Tree tomorrow night and finishing with some fantastic Australia Day celebrations. I’ll be at the Cotton Tree events with my girls this weekend and on New Year’s Eve - I hope to see you there.

Council is a major partner in five community carol events – Carols at Cotton Tree, Carols on Kings Beach, Nambour Community Carols, Glasshouse Country Carols and Coolum Christmas in the Park. There’s some smaller events lined up too, including the Twin Waters Christmas Carols, Montville’s Carols and many more. Here’s a snapshot of what’s on – make sure you visit Council’s Events Hub for more events and further details. Thank you to all the community groups who will present these great events for our families to enjoy.
