A SPECIAL GIFT TO TOOWOOMBA

It was established to remind visitors of the real meaning of Christmas and to celebrate the birth of the Christ Child, Jesus.
Numerous Christmas trees are decorated in line with a theme adopted by the committee and displayed with some description of the thoughts in the mind of those decorators.
The theme for the 2017 festival is Music of the Nativity.
Community groups, families and individuals are invited to decorate one or more trees in line with the theme.

A program of Christmas-type music is held each night and morning of the festival.
