Wingecarribee Shire Council and the Southern Highlands Chamber of Commerce and Industry are set to light up the Shire’s largest Christmas tree on Friday 6 December in Bowral’s Corbett Plaza.
Corbett Plaza will be a hive of activity with face painting, plaster decorating and a crazy hair station kicking off festivities from 6 pm.
“This event has been steadily growing in popularity in recent years bringing families from across the Shire into the heart of Bowral for a wonderful community celebration,” said Wingecarribee Shire Mayor Councillor Duncan Gair.
“Those who’ve visited in previous years may notice that the tree has been upgraded,” he said. “We’ve secured a larger tree that previously stood in Sydney’s Hyde Park.”
“It’ll make sure the reindeer can spot the Southern Highlands from high above on Christmas Eve regardless of the weather.”
Helping to spread the festive cheer will be singers from the Wingecarribee Vocal Muster performing Christmas carols and members from the Bowral Lions Club will be serving a free sausage sizzle.
“There’s even a rumour that the jolly man himself will be making a very special guest appearance,” the Mayor added.
The official lighting of the community Christmas tree will take place at 7 pm on Friday 6 December in Corbett Plaza, Bowral.
The event and all activities are free of charge.
