Check this List of Events to Attend this Christmas
1. LAKE MONGER FESTIVAL Celebrate the festive season with family and friends at the annual Christmas at Lake Monger Festival.
There will be an abundance of children's entertainment, rides and live musical performances throughout the night, with a traditional finale of Christmas Carols followed by the turning on of the Christmas Tree lights.
This Christmas tree is huge and I used to live opposite this fantastic wetland where you could see the tree from a long distance away.
There will be over 35 stallholders here so this will be a great event and a good opportunity to get those unusual gifts.
