The official launch and turning on of Cooroy’s Christmas tree at 7pm on Friday 2nd December is a great night out for the whole family. Cooroy is once again festooned in Christmas decorations and this year the decorations are even more impressive than previous years.
The decorations in Cooroy are unusual as Cooroy is one of the few towns that fund and install their own decorations thanks to the dedication of a host of volunteers and a few very generous sponsors. This year thousands of dollars of extra decorations have been purchased which is sure to really bring the Christmas spirit alive in the town.
Ricon Contractors designed, purchased and installed the decorations on the beautiful Christmas tree which is the centre point of the town’s decorations. The tree has always been one of the best on the Sunshine Coast and this year it has been rejuvenated with new lights and extra decorations.
Ritek Building Solutions sponsored the roundabout decorations at Garnet Street; Sunshine Mitre 10, Bone Lawyers, Town & Country Home Rentals, Hinternoosa Real Estate, Bendigo Bank Cooroy Community Branch, Luke’s Supa IGA Cooroy and Cooroy Central Guardian Pharmacy sponsored the rooftop decorations; and Cooroy Chamber funded the street decorations.
There are also 22 shops in town that have created a Shop Window Trail with beautifully decorated windows and a Cooroy possum masquerading in each window. Shoppers can win a $100 Luke’s Supa IGA Cooroy voucher by finding the possums and voting on their favourite window.
The turning on of the lights is outside the Cooroy RSL at 7.00pm Friday 2nd December. It is preceded by the opening of the My Favourite Things Photo Exhibition at the Butter Factory Arts Centre at 6pm and followed by a youth event, Live on the Beans at 7.30pm on the Library rooftop. And Friday’s celebrations are just the precursor to all of the free fun and festivities of Christmas in Cooroy on Saturday 3rd December. For all the information go to www.christmasincooroy.com.au. But whatever you do – make sure you don’t miss it!
