Lions put on the party
FIREWORKS, music and loads of fun are on the menu at the Cabarita foreshore this Saturday, as local Lions clubs host the Cabarita Community Christmas Party.
The focus will be on families coming together to celebrate the start of the festive season.
Santa will drop by and possibly help himself to a snack from the Lions' barbecue, while the kids can enjoy Leo's face-painting, the Hoopla Circus, Christmas craft activities and a jumping castle.
For the adults there are raffles and art and design markets, courtesy of Caba Creative, offering stress-free Christmas shopping opportunities including clothing, jewellery and handmade candles.
Families will be able to sway to live music from entertainers, including the Bogangar Public School, the Paul Ensbey Duo (Bullumakanka) with Rabbit from the Round Mountain Girls, 2 Pot Screamers and the Ray Catt Band.
Festivities will be topped off with a night-time fireworks spectacular sponsored by the Cabarita Beach Hotel.
Following a bush-inspired theme, the beachside party will raise funds for local organisations such as the Tweed Coast Rural Fire Service and Bogangar PS.
Caba Creative president Peita Gardiman said the group was thrilled that so many local community groups were involved.
"There's so much happening in Cabarita at the moment that it's a great time to be celebrating," she said.
Festivities start at 4pm and go through until 9pm on the foreshore between the hotel and the surf club.
