A limited number of additional bauble dining tickets are available after the event was relocated indoors due to wet weather which is forecast to continue.
Bundaberg Regional Council events portfolio spokesperson Cr John Learmonth said the Civic Centre would be transformed into a Christmas wonderland as part of the revamped event.
“Every resident would be well aware that the region has seen it’s fair share of rain this month,” Cr Learmonth said.
“This has been great news for many but also means holding an outdoor dining event is now impractical, not to mention that Buss Park is far too soggy and muddy to erect heavy Christmas decorations or to see high levels of foot traffic.
“But the event must go on, so our staff are now busy creating something very special within the Civic Centre.
“It will be like stepping inside a Christmas wonderland.
“We’re pulling out all of the stops to ensure the change in venue doesn’t impact the atmosphere of this popular event.
“The indoor venue also allows us to extend bauble dining until December 19 so limited additional tickets for the catered event and the family nights will be released.”
Cr Learmonth said the venue change also meant a walk-through night would be introduced to ensure the general public could still enjoy the dazzling spectacle.
“On December 20 we will hold a walk-through night to allow residents without dining tickets the opportunity to view the baubles and take a selfie or family Christmas photo.”
While the walk-through night will be free to attend, bookings are essential and ticket numbers will be limited in order to meet Covid-safe event restrictions.
Anyone attending the bauble dining or viewing after 17 December will need to provide proof of Covid vaccination as per the recently announced Queensland Government restrictions.
The limited additional bauble dining tickets and a limited number of walk-through night tickets have been released and are now available for purchase online through the Christmas 2021 program.
