Proston Christmas carnival celebrates festive season

CHRISTMAS will come to Proston this weekend as the community gathers to celebrate.

Proston Lions member Helen Young said the Proston Christmas Carnival on Saturday, December 15, would be a great night.

"Christmas is the season for families and friends to gather together and relax and a perfect way to celebrate will be found at the Proston Lions Community Christmas Carnival,” she said.

The event will be held at Proston Railway Park from 5-9pm.

"All the fun of a traditional country fair will ensure a very pleasant evening for people of all ages,” she said.

The Proston Show Society will run a barbecue and children's kite decorating stall, the Proston Lions will run a licensed bar and the Proston Scout Group will sell cold drinks.

Proston Bowls Club will sell a lucky ticket wheel loaded with lots of Christmas goodies and the Proston P&C will run a chocolate toss for the 2019 Year 6 Canberra trip.

There will be a pet parade, face painting, ice cream and a jumping castle, as well as many craft and gift stalls.

There will be a visit from Santa Claus and most Proston businesses will be open for Christmas shopping during the carnival.
