Summer is officially here, and as the weather heats up, so too are the preparations for Christmas in Bourke and Brewarrina.

Maranguka and Bourke Shire Council have combined to present ‘Christmas in the Park’ tomorrow night – a community event not to be missed.

Maranguka Project Officer Samara Milgate says there is a great line-up of events with Santa, elves, a monster waterslide, kids sumo wrestling, entertainment by Castlereagh Connection, market stalls, food and drink stalls, barefoot bowls, and plenty more.

Samara says she wants everyone to come down to Central Park and be part of this great community event.

“What a great way to spend Friday night in Bourke.

“There’s loads to see and do - we’ve got awesome entertainment and there is sure to be something for the everyone in the family to enjoy,” Samara said.

After Christmas in the Park, families can continue the festivities and check out the great Christmas light displays around the town.

One family that loves the excitement of Christmas is the Noye family in Short Street.

Craig and Charlene Noye have been displaying Christmas lights at their home in Bourke for three years now.

Craig and Charlene say they have always been festive people, who believe it is good to be able to share the celebration of Christmas with everyone.

Craig says unlike the big cities where you go out shopping into the malls where there is Christmas extravagance everywhere you look, Bourke is only a small town and doesn’t have that.
