To celebrate the magic of Christmas, Central Coast Council are lighting up the Coast this December with a brand new event.
A Luminous Christmas will run each evening throughout December with a full program of performances by local schools and bands in a true celebration of the festive season. “For the first time on the Coast, Council is hosting a special 30 Day LED light, sound and animation show, to ignite that spirit of Christmas in our community. “A walk along The Entrance foreshore is a must, with this new event sure to delight locals and visitors,” said Council’s Unit Manager Community Partnerships, Glenn Cannard.
The official launch of A Luminous Christmas commences from 5:30pm on December 1, when The Entrance will be transformed into a Christmas wonderland,
with stilt walking, candy canes, giant bouncy elves, an enchanting ballerina in a bubble, live entertainment, a ‘Road Star Party’ hosted by Star 104.5 and of course, Santa. “When all is calm at 8:30pm, Council invites families, friends and loved ones to witness all becoming bright when we switch on the amazing LED light show for the fi rst time,” Cannard said. “On Christmas Eve, Council will also be holding our popular Carols in the Park, so bring your picnic rugs and reindeer ears down to Memorial Park, and sing along to all of your favourite Carols and well known hits,” he added.
A Luminous Christmas is the second Council event that will have the Including You accessibility tent set up to support people in the community living with a disability, their families and carers, as well as elderly people, parents with prams, and others with limited mobility.
An initiative of Ability Links, Hunter Central Coast, the tent provides a range of free to hire sensory, vision, mobility and communication aids and supports, plus a safe space for retreat to improve the level of enjoyment and the length of time people living with disabilities are able to attend community events.
