As the region emerges from lockdown and the festive season approaches, Central Coast Council is determined to spread the Christmas cheer after a difficult year.
Town centres across the Coast will be teeming with festive spirit, with the return of favourite Christmas tree and wreath installations, accompanied photobooths and roving performances.
Former Director Connected Communities, Julie Vaughan, said there will be Christmas activities and decorations at The Entrance, Gosford, Terrigal, Toukley, Wyong and Woy Woy town centres.
“We are excited to bring back festive events across the Coast, after what has been a difficult year for locals,” Vaughan said.
“Many of us have been apart from family and friends due to extensive lockdowns, making the return of Christmas events more important than ever.
“We want to bring town centres back to life and locals and visitors together again to celebrate in a COVID safe environment.”
Council Administrator, Rik Hart, said the Christmas activations will provide support and boost to local businesses.
“Christmas on the Coast activities will bring festive joy to our community and encourage locals and visitors to spend time enjoying the businesses that surround town centres,” he said.
“I encourage the local community to take part in festive celebrations and support local businesses.”
