It’s The Most Wonderful Time of the Year…
On Friday, November 25, our annual Racecourse Road Community Christmas saw people come from far and wide and just around the corner to enjoy an evening of festive fun on our lovely road.
St Augustine’s Anglican Church hosted Carols with Ascot State School choir, a wearable art fashion parade featuring the talents St. Margaret’s girls in their “Iconic Australia” costumes and the artisan Local’s Market that saw stall holders with Christmas Wares, art, fashion, preserves and delicious goodies to handicrafts, jewellery and homewares – the perfect place to pick up unique Christmas gifts!
Santa had a queue of young ones eager to share their wishlists with the big man before the Christmas Day and from the Racetrack to the River performers roved on stilts, unicycles, with puppets and performed magic tricks. Singers and musicians filled the air with jazz and festive tunes to accompany your evening meal or put a spring in your step on a balmy Spring evening. To view the full album of seasonal celebration check out the Racecourse Road Community Christmas album on Facebook.
A big thanks to all our sponsors including, Brisbane City Council, St Augustine’s Anglican Church, St Margaret’s Anglican Girls School, Ascot State School, Realskin Clinic, Eagle Farm Markets, Worldwide Printing Hamilton and The SPICE Stall. All in all, we kicked off the festive season in style and good cheer and look forward to doing it all again next year!
From the Racecourse Road Business Group, we wish you and your loved ones a very Merry Christmas, a safe holiday season and look forward to seeing you in our Precinct for a prosperous 2017.
