Last year, the festival saw almost 4,000 visitors from far and wide come to view the display of Christmas trees and celebrate the birth of Jesus.
“In 2014, we believe the attendance will be higher, as the word spreads of the changed venue,” said Richard Thompson, chair of Toowoomba’s Christmas Tree Festival.
The beneficiaries of the gold coin entry donation this year will be The Base, Fresh Hope and Kairos Prison Ministries.
This year will feature a full programme of musical entertainment, with concerts each morning (except Sunday) at 10:30am and every evening at 7:00pm. A wide range of musical talent will be presented.
The 2014 theme is “The Colours of Christmas”, trees featuring decorations in different hues relating to the Holy Season.
“We still have time and space if you would like to decorate a tree,” said Richard.
“There is also an opportunity for any to join us who feel they would like to be part of the volunteer group. We welcomed many church and community helpers last year and the fellowship was special.”
