A Christmas Wonderland seeks to embrace the Christmas spirit of kinship and connectivity as Miller Street is lit up for an evening of grazing, shopping, and rejoicing.

Activation and communications manager, Kathryn Larkin says this is an exciting community initiative for the region.

“The event is focused on bringing the community together to reflect on the year that was, celebrate the festive season, and support our local businesses by shopping locally.

“We thank the economic development committee for their support and involvement. It’s been great to see so many local businesses and community groups put their hands up to be a part of this event.

“We continue to encourage local businesses, community groups and individuals to participate and get involved! All ideas, initiatives, activations, and activities are welcome!” said Mrs Larkin.

The twilight event includes full road closure of Miller Street, late night shopping and special offers, a major Shop Local draw (entrants must be present on the night to win), Gilgandra CWA Markets, activities for the children by Gilgandra Youth Services, a visit from Santa, live entertainment, face painting, and so much more.

There will be a great listing of local stall holders selling goods on the night, including pots, plants, succulents, and fashion. The event is being held with support from NSW government funding opportunity to host an event as part of the state-wide Reconnecting Regional NSW – Community Events program which seeks to support economic and social recovery in our local centres
