As we approach the festive season and bid farewell to a difficult year spent in extended lockdowns, the Central Coast will come alive with a series of Christmas offerings, designed to bring cheer to the local community this December.
Town Centres across the Coast will be teeming with festive spirit, with the return of favourite Christmas Tree and Wreath installations, accompanied by activations such as Photobooths and Roving Performances.
Central Coast Council Director Connected Communities, Julie Vaughan said there will be Christmas activities and decorations at The Entrance, Gosford, Terrigal, Toukley, Wyong and Woy Woy Town Centres.
“We are excited to bring back festive events across the Coast, after what has been a difficult year for locals,” Ms Vaughan said.
“Many of us have been apart from family and friends due to extensive lockdowns, making the return of Christmas events more important than ever. We want to bring town centres back to life and locals and visitors together again to celebrate in a Covid safe environment.”
In addition, Coast Opera Australia will be holding A Night of Enticement Under the Stars on the pitch of Central Coast Stadium on Saturday 4 December 2021. Those in attendance will enjoy a fine dining experience, set to the sound of performers floating between them and singing operatic numbers. Non-catered seats are also available in the stadium stand for those who wish to immerse themselves purely in the music.
Council Administrator, Rik Hart said the Christmas activations will provide support and boost to local businesses.
“Christmas on the Coast activities will bring festive joy to our community and encourage locals and visitors to spend time enjoying the businesses that surround town centres. I encourage the local community to take part in festive celebrations and support local businesses.”
Christmas on the Coast activities including Christmas Photobooths and Roving Performances, will be available from Monday 20 December to Friday 24 December in Town Centre locations across the region.
