Jolly good time with 12 Days of Christmas program

Santa's little helper and Council event officer Kylie Lane is excited for the 12 Days of Christmas.

Deck the halls and jingle those bells – the 12 Days of Christmas program has been launched for a sleigh-load of festive events to brighten the Bundaberg Region.

Kicking off on the first day of December, the program features fun festive activities every day between December 1 and 12.

Bundaberg Regional Council’s events portfolio spokesperson Cr John Learmonth said the jam-packed 12 Days of Christmas program had something to give everyone a jolly good time.

“Council has partnered with community groups and businesses to deliver an exciting range of Christmas events,” Cr Learmonth said.

“Delivering such an extensive list of events and activities in a short period of time is a real community effort and a testament to the spirit of the season.

“COVID has required us to rethink the way we do events which is why residents can now take part in a series of mini events that can be delivered in line with current State Government restrictions.

“Council would not have been able to deliver this program without the support of community groups and businesses which have rallied around the concept, helping to bring it to life.”

Highlights for the kids include the Selfie with Elfie scavenger hunt, a range of Christmas craft activities and a colouring in competition.

Adults have not been left out with events to enjoy like the 12 Days of Christmas Cocktails, a Christmas Degustation, a performance of A Midsummer Night’s Dream and various workshops.

“For all the family there are outdoor movie nights, Paradise Lane Christmas lights, carols and a Christmas fair and markets,” Cr Learmonth said.

“The 12 Days of Christmas program is a chance for our community to embrace the holiday cheer in a range of unique and creative ways.”

The 12 Days of Christmas program is being delivered with support from the Australian Government bushfire recovery initiative.
