"There will be something there for everyone,” fair organiser, Mark Smith from Murgon's Mark Smith's Menswear said.

"We will have a huge selection of delicious street food from a number of local businesses and this year we have seven different rides for the whole family to enjoy,” Mr Smith said.

Of course, the one and only Mr Claus will be stopping by especially for the evening with $2 Santa photos available from 6-8pm.

Santa's sleigh has taken on a brand new shade to commemorate 25 years since the first Christmas Fair was held back in 1993 and the town's Christmas tree will also be adorned with some beautiful new decorations.

This year will also see the introduction of a selection of sample bags for the very first time.

"The fair started as a great way to get the Murgon community together and has continued to provide an opportunity for the participating local businesses to give back to their loyal customers,” said Mr Smith.

BIG BAND: The Wondai and District Town Band will also be performing at 25th Mugon Christmas Fair.
