Everybody loves a camel ride.


There will be a variety of inflatables and bathers will be required. There is the Monster Ultimate - a 50m long obstacle course; a 9m Super Slide; the Spider Mountain for sliding, bouncing and climbing on; Bucking Bulls to challenge a friend; slip and slide on the Aqua Rush and for those under seven years of age there is the Lil' Splash slide.

The lights will be switched on the giant 30-metre Christmas tree on the corner of Beaufort Street and First Avenue in front of St Patricks, including the big star perched at the top of St Patricks Christmas tree.

Beaufort Street in front of the church will be closed to traffic from Regent Street to Second Avenue so vendors and entertainers can make the most of the streetscape.

Father Steve says he is pleased to welcome back the Christmas festivities because he believes community events such as the festival are an important outreach into the community.

He was keen for the festival to be a family and a community experience. It was also important to keep the historic Christmas story in front of people and to gently reinforce it through classic carols and the basic Nativity story.
