Community members are invited to attend the free Christmas Fest event in Kibble Park, Gosford, on Sunday, December 17, from 5.30pm.
Amongst the festivities will be a petting zoo, a Thomas the Tank Engine ride, jumping castles, big slide, pirate ship, and face painting.
There will be live entertainment, with Christmas music and traditional Christmas Carols, performed by local artists on Kibble Park stage, a visit from Santa and the Jingles, and then all topped off with a massive fireworks display from the roof of the Imperial Centre.
A selection of food stalls will be on site for those looking to purchase food and drinks, or people can bring along a picnic basket to enjoy in the park during the festivities.
The event is an initiative of Liberty Family Church, Gosford, whose aim is to provide a safe and friendly Christmas celebration for the community.
Ms Kim Jones, senior leader of the Liberty Family Church, said: “It’s an opportunity for people to get together with friends and family before Christmas, or an opportunity for those who don’t have family close by, to be part of a community celebration.
“We just want people to get into the spirit of Christmas and join us in Kibble Park for a great time.
“We have a beautiful park that has been home to many community events and Christmas Fest has become a popular annual event for the city, with attendances growing every year”, Ms Jones said.
The event will conclude at 9pm and is proudly supported by the Imperial Centre, Central Coast Radio and Central Coast Business Improvement District (GBID).
