Christmas is just over a month away and our thoughts start turning to all that is festive and fun over the Christmas period.
Only a short distance from Brisbane city is the Redcliffe Peninsula on the sparkling waters of Moreton Bay where you can really get into the Christmas spirit, relax, unwind and enjoy your Christmas holidays.
Here is some Christmas inspiration for this festive season:
Scarborough Lights Up
Bringing back that old-fashioned Christmas spirit to Scarborough you will soon be seeing ten HUGE ‘crystal rain’ decorated and lit-up 3-metre tall Christmas Trees in the streets of Scarborough throughout December and January this Christmas.
Scarborough Christmas Carols
Scarborough Lights are also conducting the Scarborough Christmas Carols event on Sunday 11 December at the Scarborough Beach Parklands on Landsborough Avenue in Scarborough.
Enjoy dance groups, roving Christmas performers, twilight markets, and free Christmas activities and workshops. The kids will fall in love with Santa’s Village and our life-sized snow globe, and they will even get to meet Santa himself. The evening will also feature a very special fireworks display!
New Year’s Eve Fireworks Bridge to Belvedere
Kick off the new year early with a family friendly fireworks extravaganza at 8:30pm, sponsored by the Belvedere Hotel at Woody Point. You can view the spectacular display from just about anywhere along the Clontarf-Woody Point foreshore, from the Ted Smout Bridge right through to the Woody Point Jetty.
Pine Rivers Christmas Carols
Sit back, relax, and join in the carolling fun with local community groups, schools and dance groups, and a marquee carolling performance at Pine Rivers Park, Strathpine on Sunday 27 November from 7pm. Don’t miss meeting Santa at Santa’s Village or jumping in the giant snow globe. Wander through the twilight markets and the kids will love the free Christmas activities and workshops. The evening will also feature a huge fireworks display.
