On Friday 18 December, Lake Apex Parklands will come alive with rides, food and market stalls, the famous Ham Wheel, roving balloon twister and a stage packed full of entertainment. From 5pm, buy a ride wristband for only $7 (discounts for families) and be first in the queue to enjoy the great range of amusement rides from 5.30pm through until 9.30pm.
The Ham Wheel raises funds for the Local Ambulance Committee and gives you the chance to take home a festive ham for Christmas, and of course Santa will be there to meet the kids, have a photo and do a song on stage before starting his long journey back to the North Pole.
The stage program is packed full of family entertainment with performances by Lockyer Valley School of Highland Dance, Fitness and Dance and the Starlite dancers, a spectacular fire twirler and local band led by musician Steve Robin. The Colouring Competition presentations will be on stage at 6.20pm and the Spirit of the Lockyer Valley Christmas Lights and Decoration Competition winners' presentation will be on stage at 7.15pm.

The Colouring Competition is now open and you can download the entry form HERE! Entries close on Tuesday 15 December and the winner in each group will receive a $50 Lockyer Valley Gift Card to spend at participating businesses.
