Starring Christmas Trees
Follow the Star is the theme for the ever-engaging Willunga Christmas Tree Festival in 2017. Now in its sixteenth year, the Christmas Tree Festival appeals to all ages, with beautifully decorated Christmas trees, music, Christmas stalls and children's activities.

There are many things to investigate. I love the individuality of the decorated trees. Some are created by single people. Many are contributed by community groups. There are three prizes for the best decorated Christmas tree and all visitors have the opportunity to vote for the People's Choice winner.

The Christmas stalls are another enticing reason to visit. Delicious home-baked cakes and biscuits will be on sale. The children will enjoy the colouring competition with art and colouring book prizes.

The festival is sponsored by Onkaparinga Council and Laucke Flours. A visit to the Willunga Christmas Tree Festival would not be complete without indulging in a delicious Devonshire tea.

Children can explore the adventure trail that runs throughout the festival. Every child will receive a prize on completion of the trail. Children can gain admission for free and adult entry is only $3. Bring the kids, bring the grandparents; there is joy and delight waiting to be experienced at the Willunga Christmas Tree Festival.

The Festival is held on the 2nd and 3rd of December at Bethany Hall (adjacent Willunga Uniting Church), 7 St Judes Street, Willunga. Community groups can book their own times from the 4th to the 8th of December.

An Advent Wreath Making workshop will be held on 25th November. Bookings are essential for this popular workshop running from 1.00pm to 4.00pm. You can make a beautiful table wreath for all your Christmas gatherings. The workshop costs only $25. Individual Advent wreath creations will be on display as part of the festival.

This year, there will also be a quiet day meditation workshop on the 11th November. The meditation workshop runs from 10.30am - 4.00pm and will be led by Lynona Hawkins. The cost is $10. Book for either of these workshops by ringing 8566 2650.
