The Coast’s festive season will commence in Gosford with Central Coast Council’s Christmas in Kibble Park.

Acting Director Connected Communities, Glenn Cannard, said there was nothing quite like watching one of the Coast’s flagship Christmas trees erupt with light for the first time.

“Council’s Christmas events are all about getting together with family, friends and our community to sing carols, enjoy live entertainment, eat delicious food and soak up some Christmas joy in three of our beautiful town centres, ” Cannard said.

“Make sure you’re there to see at least one of our two flagship Christmas trees ignite with light for the first time and keep an eye out for Santa because he’ll be making special appearances at all events.

“Christmas in Kibble Park is sure to be popular with festive themed market stalls, carols and roving entertainment.

“The kids will love getting crafty in Santa’s workshop and singing along to The Grinch Show live on stage, ” Cannard said. Mayor Lisa Matthews said Christmas was a magical time on the Central Coast for both locals and visitors. “There is a wonderful energy on the Coast over the Christmas period and I’d encourage everyone to get along to at least one of Council’s special Christmas events, ” Mayor Matthews said.

Christmas in Kibble Park gets underway from 4pm on November 23.

Council’s other big Christmas events include the lighting of the Christmas Tree at Toukley, A Luminous Christmas at The Entrance, and Carols in the Park at Memorial Park.
