STABLE ON THE STRAND
Townsville’s Christmas Festival for the whole family!!
For five days before Christmas (18th – 22nd December, 5.30-9.30pm, 2013), Townsville’s major ocean-front area, Strand Park, will be transformed into the historic town of Bethlehem.
Multiple stages across the park will feature wonderful Christmas entertainment.
Visiting artists this year include:
Many and varied local artists will thrill the audiences using a variety of media – singing, acting, story telling and mime. This year we have the pleasure of welcoming Island Breeze, a Polynesian dance group, to Townsville and Stable on the Strand.

The amphitheatre production this year, Christmas through Angel Eyes, will provide fresh insights into the Christmas Story. This play is directed and produced by Leon De Jager (drama teacher) and performed by students from Annandale Christian College.
Enjoy the ambiance of Bethlehem 2000 years ago. There will be lots of kid’s activities to keep children busy – face painting, games, dressups, carpentry, weaving, pottery and dancing.
Hospitality – Don’t miss the complimentary slice of Christmas Cake and cuppa to keep you going throughout the night.
Youth on the Sand can be found on the beach opposite Strand Park. This year the Island Breeze rugby team will be running a series of sports events (soccer, touch and beach volleyball). There will also be laser skirmish and a huge slide for the kids.
