TOWERING at more than 10m high and complete with a 1.7m star will be the city’s largest Christmas tree.
The tree will be unveiled as part of the free Christmas in the CBD celebrations later this month to officially bring the festive spirit to Toowoomba.
Councillor Geoff McDonald said there will be four areas in the CBD to enjoy the activities which included City Hall, Walton Stores, Bell St Mall and Grand Central’s Central Square.
Activites will include childrens’ rides, a visit from characters like Spiderman and Belle from Beatury and the Beast, elf hat making and, of course, a visit from Santa on his sleigh.
Santa will make his way through the CBD before stopping at Central Square to unveil the city’s biggest tree along with Mayor Paul Antonio and other speical guests.
“It is just a special time of year isn’t it. That we can all come together and celebrate the great place we live but also catch up with friends and family and really get invovled in the festival season,” Mr McDonald said.
Christmas in the CBD on Thursday, November 30 will kick off a huge Christmas weekend for Toowoomba which includes Cobb and Co’s Hand Made Under the Stars Market on the same night, the Bush Christmas Exhibiton which also kicks off on the Thursday, the offcial opening of Christmas Wonderland on Saturday and the Mayoral Carols on Sunday.
