Wingecarribee Shire Council is set to light up the Shire’s largest Christmas tree this Saturday 1 December in Bowral’s Corbett Plaza in the lead up to the festive season.
“With just weeks to go until Christmas Day we thought we’d get into the spirit of the festive season with a giant Christmas tree in the heart of Bowral,” Wingecarribee Shire Mayor Councillor Duncan Gair said.
Helping to spread the festive cheer is the Southern Highlands Chamber of Commerce and Industry who helped construct the tree and, if rumours are true, have organised a special visit from the jolly man himself.
“The Christmas tree has long been one of the key symbols of the holiday season and we hope ours will help spread the festive cheer throughout the Shire and remind everyone of the true spirit of Christmas,” said Mayor Gair.
“It’ll also make sure the reindeer can spot the Southern Highlands from high above on Christmas Eve regardless of the weather.”
Singers from the Wingecarribee Vocal Muster will be on hand to perform Christmas carols and members from the Bowral Lions Club will be serving a free sausage sizzle.
The official lighting of the Southern Highlands community Christmas tree will take place from 7pm on Saturday 1 December 2018 in Corbett Plaza, Bowral.
