Forbes North Public School Kindergarten students (L-R) Sarah Haywood, Tyler O’Malley, Lucia Bilsborough and Isaac Knight, doing their part for the class Christmas tree entry.
The 6th spectacular Rotary Ipomoea Christmas Tree Festival will be held in the Forbes Town Hall and will open its doors today at 6pm.
Thereafter the wondrous Christmas trees can also be viewed all day on Saturday, 2nd December from 9am to 5pm and on Sunday, 3rd December from 9am to 1pm.
The Forbes Shire Council has kindly waived the hire cost of the Town Hall for this family event and Mayor Graeme Miller will also be attending the opening of the event.
Last year Rotary members were proud to display 91 beautifully creative entries from community clubs, businesses, churches, families and schools. This year an ecstatic Rotary Ipomoea team already have an astounding 111 entries booked in for the weekend’s event.
Classes and individuals from St Laurence’s School, Forbes Public School, Forbes North School, Forbes High School, Eugowra Public School, Bedgerabong Public School as well as many other entries from preschools and childcare centres will provide the base for this wonderful family Christmas event.
Tree entries can still be dropped off at the Town Hall from 8am today.
Entry to the event is free for children accompanied by an adult and only $2 for adults to see the display.
The community is encouraged to come and see this wonderful Christmas wonderland.
