Have a very Lake Macquarie lead up to Christmas with all these free events! - the little lioness

Have a very Lake Macquarie lead up to Christmas with all these free events!

There’s so many family activities being put on by Lake Macquarie council and the local business chambers! Check some of them out!

One Big Night

The Lake Macquarie International Children’s Games opening ceremony will kick off at 5pm Sunday 7 December in Speers Point Park, followed by the Newcastle Permanent Carols by Candlelight from 8pm, as they combine for one big night of entertainment. Fireworks will be at 9:30pm.

This is a free event. If you get there early to secure a spot, you will also be able to enjoy free amusement rides for the kids from 3pm. Council is running shuttle buses from Warners Bay because there is so little parking in the park area.

Link for more information on the carols and Children’s Games.

Local Carols

There are also local carols at parks around the Lake as well as local primary schools. Some of the larger ones will be at Toronto, Swansea, Valentine and Morriset. Look for notices at your local shops!

Wangi markets

Night Markets

Markets are all the rage, and there will be night markets at Speers Point Park on Tuesday Dec 9 (See and share the FB event) and twilight markets at Wangi on Friday Dec 5.
At the Speers Point markets there will be Indigenous food tasting from 3-5pm followed by local stallholders and entertainment at 5pm.
On Friday Wangi’s main street will close for the markets and there will be craft activities for the kids (and kids at heart!)
