Carnival celebrates sense of community
Shop while enjoying rides, activities, food and drink
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.
