Santa Claus Is Coming To Town

Santa Claus is Coming  to Town
Santa Claus is coming to Redcliffe — to Dolphin Stadium, to be exact.

The stadium will sparkle with Christmas lights when it transforms into a winter wonderland to host the 2020 Redcliffe Christmas Carols.

Moreton Bay Region Industry and Tourism (MBRIT) and Moreton Bay Regional Council are creating the event in the new location to help with contact tracing requirements. In true 2020 style, there are new safety measures in place to ensure the enjoyment of all attendees that align with a COVID-safe event.

MBRIT CEO Shane Newcombe said the family-friendly event would look slightly different this year but they were thrilled to be able to deliver the 2020 Christmas carols program after such a difficult year for the community.

Moreton Bay Regional Council Mayor Peter Flannery said it was important to help the community celebrate the road to recovery after a turbulent start to the year.

“The fact that we’re able to celebrate like this is a testament to the hard work of every local in keeping us safe from the coronavirus, so we deserve this,” he said. “I’m proud that that we’ve been able to roll out this program of Christmas events for our local community, with just a few changes to ensure that we keep everyone safe.”

The changes to this year’s carols include a walk-through Santa experience, which is a mock North Pole, instead of the usual rides and Santa’s village.

It will also provide plenty of stage entertainment – with the performers still to be announced – singing all your favourite festive carols, and the finale will showcase an incredible fireworks display.

Although the event is still free family fun, pre-registering online is required in order to obtain your ticket. There will be no tickets available on the day.

“Christmas is such a wonderful time and I think families will welcome the festive cheer more than ever this year,” Cr Flannery said.
