The Free Press (Corowa) - - FRONT PAGE - BY SARAH DEAN

Plans for the Corowa Christ­mas Street Fes­ti­val have been ramped up as Corowa Events re­cently locked in the dates for this year’s event - Fri­day, Novem­ber 24 and Satur­day, Novem­ber 25.

Dur­ing a meet­ing on the evening of Septem­ber 6, mem­bers of Corowa Events, which is a sub-com­mit­tee of Corowa Busi­ness Cham­ber, met with re­tail­ers to de­vise ideas on how the fes­ti­val will run.

Fri­day night will have a fo­cus on chil­dren with ac­tiv­i­ties at this stage to in­clude face paint­ing, jump­ing cas­tles, hay mazes, chalk draw­ing, raf­fles and a visit from Santa Clause and his elves.

Chil­dren will once again this year have the op­por­tu­nity to have their pho­to­graph taken with Santa.

Dance groups, choirs and late night shop­ping is also be­ing or­gan­ised for the Fri­day night which is planned to run be­tween 5.30pm and 7.30pm at this stage.

Mean­while, Satur­day looks like be­ing a longer event that may kick off from 3.30pm and run un­til 10pm.

There will be chil­dren’s en­ter­tain­ment as well as live mu­sic and ta­bles and chairs in the street for peo­ple to en­joy food and drinks.
