The Coble Land­ing, Fi­ley, tomorrow hosts free fam­ily fes­tive en­ter­tain­ment, in­clud­ing the choir, Santa and car­ols.

There’s a great fes­tive lineup in store at the first ever Fi­ley Fish­ing Christ­mas Tree Switch-on Event, be­ing held on Coble Land­ing Fi­ley be­tween 6pm and 7pm tomorrow night.

Fi­ley’s Town Mayor will be open­ing the even­ing, fol­lowed by a per­for­mance by Fi­ley Ju­nior School Choir.

There’ll then be a chance to spot Santa’s sleigh and give him a wave, while Fi­ley Fish­er­men’s Choir sing some Christ­mas favourites on the build-up to the big count­down to the switch-on.

Af­ter the lights go on, there will be more singing from the Fish­er­men’s Choir.

Fi­ley Show Group will round off the even­ing with fun per­for­mances, in­clud­ing a song es­pe­cially writ­ten for the oc­ca­sion.

The busi­nesses on Coble Land­ing will also be staying open un­til late, with food and drink avail­able.

There’ll be plenty of time to ad­mire the tree it­self, which will be stand­ing ap­prox­i­mately 25 feet tall. It will be il­lu­mi­nated ev­ery day from December 1 to the first week of January and, at night, will be vis­i­ble for miles along Fi­ley Bay.

Close-up, vis­i­tors will be able to see how it’s made of all things fishy, as it’s de­signed to cel­e­brate Fi­ley’s fish­ing her­itage.

There will be do­na­tion boxes by the tree, with pro­ceeds go­ing to­wards next year’s tree and lo­cal youth or­gan­i­sa­tions.

Keep an eye out around Fi­ley for the posters ad­ver­tis­ing the switch-on. They were de­signed by chil­dren from Fi­ley Ju­nior School with the top three posters be­ing picked out by rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the Fi­ley Fish­ing Tree Plan­ning Team, Fi­ley Tourism As­so­ci­a­tion and Deputy Mayor Coun­cil­lor John Casey.

The win­ners have been awarded their prizes in school. The chil­dren are also get­ting arty and cre­at­ing colour­ful fish bunt­ing, which will be placed around the tree.
