Region to spend 12 days celebrating Christmas

Residents can expect more than a partridge in a pear tree this year with a new 12 Days of Christmas program launched in place of Pageant of Lights.

Arts, culture and events spokesperson Cr John Learmonth said Bundaberg Regional Council had made the difficult decision to cancel Pageant of Lights this year due to the uncertainty surrounding the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

“The pageant is always an incredibly popular and well attended event and we know many families look forward to attending each year,” Cr Learmonth said.

“Council’s events staff, much like Santa’s elves, have been busy working behind the scenes to make sure the magic and excitement of the festive season is still felt throughout the region.

“Our new 12 Days of Christmas concept will see Council partner with businesses and local organisations to continue this proud tradition of celebrating the season together, while still allowing us to meet COVID safe event requirements.”

Expressions of interest are now open for groups or businesses interested in taking part in the program.

“Every day from December 1 to December 12 residents will be able to enjoy unique Christmas experiences through a variety of different events.

“If you believe you have what it takes to spread a little Christmas cheer, we’d love to hear your ideas!”
