Central and North Burnett Times - - SOCIALS -

THE Biggen­den Apex Club is or­gan­is­ing a big­ger and bet­ter Christ­mas Car­ni­val for res­i­dents to en­joy on Satur­day, De­cem­ber 15.

The busi­ness area is set to be a hive of ac­tiv­ity with food and mar­ket stalls of­fer­ing some­thing for ev­ery­one.

Club trea­surer Rob­bie Radel said he was look­ing for­ward to the com­mu­nity cel­e­brat­ing with them.

“Busi­nesses have been in­vited to stay open so res­i­dents can take the time to do some last-minute Christ­mas shop­ping,” he said.

“We have had in­quiries from out-of-town­ers about when the car­ni­val was be­ing held.

“This is a true in­di­ca­tion peo­ple are look­ing for­ward to the night.”

The car­ni­val runs from 5–9pm, but the streets will be closed from 3–10pm.

It is an ac­tion-packed pro­gram for the en­tire fam­ily.

Var­i­ous or­gan­i­sa­tions will be pro­vid­ing hot chips, seafood, snow cones, soft serve ice­cream, cold drinks, glow sticks, lol­lies and face paint­ing while the Apex Club will man the bar­be­cue.

The Apex Club will also have ham and seafood raf­fles.

The mar­ket stalls will of­fer a va­ri­ety of gifts, home bak­ing, jew­ellery and craft for Christ­mas gifts.

Stall hold­ers are still wel­come. Con­tact any of the Apex Club mem­bers.

Chil­dren at­tend­ing the car­ni­val can en­joy a va­ri­ety of rides and amuse­ments.

The Apex Club will have its jump­ing cas­tle set up in front of the en­trance to the rail­way.

The Apex train, with rides for young and old, will weave its way around the streets.

There will also be air­brush tat­toos.

Santa is ex­pected to ar­rive with treats for the chil­dren be­tween 7.30 and 8pm.

Af­ter Santa de­parts, the fire­works will light up the skies thanks to the gen­er­ous spon­sor­ship of the North Bur­nett Re­gional Coun­cil and Bur­nett Live­stock and Realty.

For any­one want­ing to party into the night there will be live en­ter­tain­ment at the Com­mer­cial Ho­tel.

ALL ABOARD: Biggen­den Apex Club will have the Apex train out at the Apex Car­ni­val on Satur­day, De­cem­ber 15.
