Come along and celebrate Christmas in Sandgate on Saturday 6th December

This family-friendly free event is a great opportunity to do something fun together. So, come along and have a laugh, make some memories and snap crazy Christmas photos as keepsakes.

Participate in lantern making, the best dressed competition, grab a meal and then, warm up your vocal cords by singing along at the top of your voice while watching Disney's Frozen movie. Of course, you could just watch the movie in silence too.

Christmas in Sandgate will have something for mum, dad and the kids, including:
A lantern workshop with 'My Aunty Anna' from 4pm prior to a twilight parade, proudly supported by Kerry Millard MP
Lighting of the Christmas Tree at 6.45pm, also proudly supported by Kerry Millard MP, and
A FREE screening of Disney's 'Frozen' movie starting at 7pm

Christmas is a time of community, connection and appreciation.

So, a very big thank you goes to all of the generous people and businesses that support this event each year, Christmas in Sandgate would not be the same without your tireless efforts.
