The festive season will be welcomed in style on Redlands Coast on Friday 29 November 2019 with Lightup Your Christmas – the annual lighting of the city's Christmas tree.

Redland City Council will host plenty of free Christmas fun in Cleveland Library Square and Raby Bay Harbour Park from 4pm. Come and be entertained by the live stage performers, roving carollers, free face painting and of course a visit from Santa!

Start your Christmas shopping at the popular Twilight Christmas Markets on the boardwalk at Raby Bay Harbour Park from 4pm. Visit the Cleveland library where it will be transformed into a magical Christmas wonderland with plenty of fun activities and giveaways for the kids.

Families will have an opportunity to get a photo with Santa from 5.30pm in Cleveland Library Square before the countdown to the lighting of our wonderful community Christmas tree at around 7pm.
