To be held at Mary Mackil­lop Catholic College in High­fields on Satur­day, December 16 from 4pm to 9pm, the Crave Christ­mas Spec­tac­u­lar is seeking to cel­e­brate the lo­cal com­mu­nity and bring to­gether fam­i­lies of all ages to kick off the fes­tive sea­son in style.

This event came to be when the com­mit­tee mem­bers of Crave Food Fes­ti­val and the High­fields Vil­lage Mar­kets heard that the an­nual High­fields Block Party would not be run­ning this year. Inevitably, the com­mit­tees joined forces to cre­ate the very first Crave Christ­mas Spec­tac­u­lar.

The event also ex­tends in­vi­ta­tions to lo­cal not-for-profit or­gan­i­sa­tions to par­tic­i­pate and raise aware­ness and funds for their groups.

Or­gan­iser of Crave Food Fes­ti­val Emma Ehrlich and or­gan­iser of High­fields Vil­lage Mar­kets Amy Manz will be help­ing co­or­di­nate Crave Christ­mas Spec­tac­u­lar this year.

“There will be food ven­dors and food spe­cial­ity stalls, an open air cinema, kids ac­tiv­i­ties in­clud­ing jump­ing cas­tles, jumbo slide, giant board games, face paint­ing, bou­tique mar­ket stalls for last-minute gifts, live mu­sic, bar fa­cil­i­ties, fire­works and, of course, Santa ar­riv­ing in style via he­li­copter!” Amy adds.

“In ad­di­tion, there will be a va­ri­ety of dis­plays and ac­tiv­i­ties from lo­cal not-for-profit or­gan­i­sa­tions.”

Many of the event’s ac­tiv­i­ties are free or for a small charge to cover costs.

“We in­vite not only High­fields lo­cals but sur­round­ing com­mu­ni­ties to be in­volved,” Emma says.

“We have a fab­u­lous lo­cal com­mu­nity and any chance to cel­e­brate is fan­tas­tic.

“It’s a way that ev­ery­one can meet up in a fam­ily-friendly en­vi­ron­ment, share a meal and catch up be­fore the crazi­ness of the fes­tive sea­son gets into full swing.”
