Christmas in the Park | Strathpine November 2015
Christmas is going to be huge this year in Brisbane and we know this as a number of celebrities – including the biggest star of them all (hint: he wears red) – arrive on Brisbane’s northside to perform at the Christmas in the Park event. This is the first of 3 Christmas events planned in 2015, as part of the Christmas in the Moreton Bay Region celebrations.
Christmas In The Park – The Festivities
For the kids (and their mums), it doesn’t get much bigger than Jimmy Giggle; so you know that it’s going to be an amazing event when Jimmy Giggle himself is there to officially welcome everyone to Christmas in the Park. Jimmy Giggle will be sharing the stage with B1 and B2, who will be performing in their very own Bananas in Pyjamas live Christmas show, and Nickelby The Magician, who will have the audience amazed as he performs a number of magic tricks. The very gifted Tim Campbell will have the crowd singing along to a host of well known Christmas carols, while a number of talented local acts will round out the live entertainment for the night.
Away from the stage, a gold coin donation will get you into Santa’s Village where kids will find Christmas craft workshops, an animal farm, face painting and, of course, photos with the big man himself – Santa Claus. There will be a Christmas market onsite offering a great range of Christmas gift ideas, and delicious food and drink to purchase, while the kids can have fun and enjoy the $2 rides. After 4 jam-packed hours of festive fun, fireworks will light up the sky and officially close the event at Pine Rivers Park, which has affectionately become known to locals this time every year as the Winter Wonderland.
