It’s time to open the costume cupboard, bust out those sequins, and get ready for Christmas in Cooroy and the Bendigo Bank Street Parade!
This year’s theme is “Past, Present, Future”, so you can expect there will be some interesting floats from local community groups and businesses alike!
Will we see a DeLorean with Marty McFly and Doc Brown? Or maybe a futuristic spaceship coming to whisk people off to times unknown? Or perhaps a flash back to a significant period from the past like the Roaring 20s or the Roman Empire. One thing is for certain – there will be lollies, lights, and laughs for all to share.
Christmas in Cooroy is one of the most anticipated events of the festive season. With free rides, entertainment, and even an appearance from the jolly man in red; it is truly no wonder that crowds flock to enjoy this incredible festival.
But what is our amazing Christmas festival without a magical street parade? Every year Christmas in Cooroy showcases the best dressed floats the Noosa Hinterland has to offer and the Cooroy Community Bank Branch of Bendigo Bank has been proudly sponsoring the Street Parade for over a decade.
“We are always pleased to be involved with Christmas in Cooroy as it’s so much fun and it really showcases Cooroy’s amazing community spirit. Volunteers, community groups and businesses all work together to produce something quite special. The event has a wonderful community atmosphere and it’s an event we are proud to support,” said Cooroy Community Bank Business Development Manager, Geoff Edwards.
Christmas in Cooroy is hosted by the Cooroy Chamber of Commerce and the Rotary Club of Cooroy. This phenomenal free community festival would not be possible without the support of the many volunteers and businesses. Noosa Council provides a community grant and everything at the event from rides to the Santa visit is free thanks to Bendigo Bank, Cooroy Rag, Mower & ATV Solutions, Cooroy SUPA IGA, Cooroy RSL, Cooroy Hotel, Noosa Care, John Madill Toyota, Madill Holden, Bentleys, Cooroy Family Practice, Wythes Real Estate, Cooroy Fish & Chips, Cooroy Legal Centre, The Leather Doctor, Hinternoosa Real Estate, Live Life Pharmacy, Sunshine Mitre 10, Gelignite Jacks, SPV Accounting, SPM Law, The Shed @ Cooroy, Cooroy Computers and Cooroy Pest Control.
