Christmas on the Coast: Celebrate the Festive Season with Sparkling Events in Central Coast Towns

by LukeAdmin

The magic of Christmas on the Coast returns from 24 November, with Town Centre Carols, larger than life Christmas trees, lights and bauble displays, and visits from Santa to ensure the Coast sparkles with Christmas fun. 

Discover a Christmas Wonderland in Gosford, Wyong, The Entrance and Toukley – designed to bring the community together and spread joy across the region. 

The much-loved Christmas tree and wreath installations return, as do sparkling decorations, all of which will be on display. 

A series of seasonal events and activities will be available for the public to enjoy, including DIY Christmas photos, Christmas Carols and other live entertainment, and of course, an opportunity to post a letter to Santa! 

The festivities kick off on Friday 24 November running until Sunday 7 January across the four Town Centres. 

Director of Community and Recreation Services, Melanie Smith said individual businesses are also getting into the Christmas spirit across the four Town Centres with a trail of Christmas window displays. 

“Businesses located in Gosford, Wyong, The Entrance and Toukley are taking part in the festivities with a Christmas Window Display Competition,” Ms Smith said. 

“Visitors and residents are encouraged to plan a ‘window display’ trail and vote for their favourite via a QR code for a chance to win a $250 gift card.” 

“Voting opens 24 November and closes 7 January 2024 with the winners announced 10 January 2024”. 

Council Administrator, Rik Hart said the Christmas activations will provide support and a boost for local businesses.

“We’ve got a fantastic month-long program of free events for families, shoppers and visitors to enjoy,” Mr Hart said.
