Christmas is almost here

Wow!  Where did the year go? This year the Coast lights up once again for dozens of Christmas events, from the ever-popular Christmas Carols and the Christmas Tree Trail, to the magical New Year’s Eve blast.

Here are some of the many Christmas events that I am sure will keep you and your family entertained. Come along and join my family and I in celebrating the wonder of Christmas.

  • Twin Waters Christmas Carols – December 21, 6.30pm (Novotel Resort)
  • Mudjimba Beach Carols – December 12, 6.30pm (Power Park, Mudjimba Esplanade)
  • Carols at Cotton Tree – December 6, 4.30pm (Cotton Tree Esplanade)
  • Coolum Christmas in the Park – December 13, 7pm (Tickle Park)

The Christmas Tree Trail features decorated community trees at 22 locations across the region. Visit Council’s website for a full list. You’ll find Division 8’s sparkling trees in Mudjimba, Marcoola and Cotton Tree.

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the local community, volunteers and organisers for their hard work and dedication to bring these wonderful Christmas events to our beautiful Sunshine Coast.
