Katoomba Community Christmas Fair – Sun 25th November

Monday, November 19th, 2012

Katoomba Public P & C and Connect Family Services are hosting a Community Christmas fair this Sunday 10-2pm (entry on Waratah St Katoomba). The Fair is focusing on community and trying to keep the dollars in the mountains as well as save people a trip to Penrith to do their Christmas shopping. There will be live music, food and a big FREE jumping castle for the kids (up to 12 years)as well as other kids activities so parents can shop whilst the kids play – yay !! Stall holders will be selling local and handmade products so some fabulous and unique gifts will be on sale and the P & C will be selling pre-loved clothes, books and bric-a-brac. Come along and support local artisans and some great Community groups including RFS, Men’s Shed and Women’s Health Centre.

Santa, Santa, Santa

In recent years, Father Christmas has only made sporadic appearances in the upper mountains before the night he traditionally turns up.

This year, Rotary has convinced the big guy (or one of his helpers?) to make some regular appearances on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays for a picture at the Leura newsagency. You will spot him between 10:30am and noon or 2:30pm and 4:30pm. Photos are $15 with proceeds helping local causes.

Mr Claus will also be making an appearance at Leura School Markets this Sunday, 4th Dec, at 11:30am. This is the last market of the year, so locals and visitors are invited to visit the 50+ stalls to pick up a unique gift for Christmas.
