Christmas Winter Wonderland

We are very very blessed in my hometown to have an amazing Christmas Wonderland. It's created and dismantled each year by a very dedicated band of volunteers who gather bits and pieces during the year.

Each display is an original and this years is no different. Blue and White Colour scheme with the lighting creates and wonderful winter feel.

I took some shots for the committee to keep for posterity and asked if I could promote them on my blog and Facebook Page.

Its wonderful to see the magic of Christmas thru a child's eyes and to see how much they believe in the magic of this time of year.

I would really recommend you take the time to visit. I'd allow an hour so you take it all in!!

The details. I've smudged the contact numbers as I've not asked permission to post them. Contact me and I'll help you out

The donation box by the door when you come in. Pop in a goldie via the chimmney and watch it run its was down to the bottom. Don't blink, its quick

inside the baker's house. real chocolates on display

check out the bottom of the dunny door. now who could that be...... 

the princess carriage. Isn't this just amazing. It was manufactured locally by a very clever gentleman and his welder. There are dress up clothes for little girls to be princesses and a cloak and crown for the boys to be kings

 All generations can wear a tiara. Basically if it fits, wear it!!
