Fun frivolities for Christmas
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.
