Christmas Party – Saturday 15thDecember

North Harbour is getting into the Christmas spirit and celebrating a huge year with a Christmas Party at the Sales and Information Centre, on Saturday December 15th from 4:30pm to 8:30pm.

The car park and Sales Centre will be transformed into Christmas Party central and we will have festive music, free sausage sizzle, free face painting, fireworks and a movie. There will also be icecream and additional drinks and food available to purchase from the North Harbour Café.

Santa will be in attendance and giving out lollies, so this is a great opportunity to get photos (for free)! We’re continuing Moreton Bay’s fine tradition of heaps of Christmas lights – so if Christmas really is that most wonderful time of year for you, don’t miss it!
