Free family fun for Christmas
OVERNIGHT rain did not stop more than 1500 people flocking to the Citicoast Church grounds for the annual Sunday B4 Christmas celebrations yesterday.
Sarah Element and a friend took their children along to the party, looking for something different to entertain the kids during the school holiday period.
“It’s great it’s free, especially being this time of year,” Ms Eastwell said.
Entertainment and activities at the carnival were free, including a sausage sizzle and roast lunch funded by money raised by the church during the year.
Citicoast Church Pastor Mark Riddell said the ninth year of the celebrations were “running smoother than ever”.
“We have lots of volunteers helping to make it work and without them we couldn’t do it,” he said.
Pastor Riddell said a number of businesses made donations to help the day run and as well as for prizes running throughout the day.
Entertainment throughout the day included demonstrations by Queensland Fire and Rescue and the Queensland Ambulance Service, face painting, live bands as well as rides.
