Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS - Erica Murree erica.murree@cnbtimes.com.au

A HIGH­LIGHT of this Satur­day night’s Biggen­den Apex Fair will be the Christ­mas Chal­lenge for teams of three.

Or­gan­iser Michelle Radel said the chal­lenge would see the first team mem­ber get dressed in a Santa suit, then run down the street to the sec­ond team mem­ber.

“They will be handed a Santa sack, which will have tree dec­o­rat­ing ma­te­rial in it,” she said.

“The sec­ond mem­ber will run back up the street to the Christ­mas tree and dec­o­rate it. When it’s fully dec­o­rated, the third team mem­ber will run back down to Santa, who has some Christ­mas treats for them to eat and drink.”

The best-dressed team will win a voucher for $150 to be spent at a Biggen­den business.

Sec­re­tary Rob­bie Radel said a prayer had gone out for fine weather be­tween 5pm and 9pm.

“We are most ap­pre­cia­tive of the rain after such a hor­rid sea­son but be­cause of that, we want peo­ple to come out and for­get their trou­bles and en­joy them­selves,” he said.

Busi­nesses will be open so take the op­por­tu­nity to browse for last-minute Christ­mas gifts.

Mar­ket stalls will line Ed­ward St and there will be rides and amuse­ments for the chil­dren.

Inside the rooms, QCWA mem­bers will serve what they are fa­mous for – tea, cof­fee and scones.

Var­i­ous or­gan­i­sa­tions will be sell­ing hot chips, cold drinks and ice creams.
