Get aboard for Port's huge Christmas party

YOU better watch out because Christmas is creeping up faster than you can say mistletoe.

The Hastings will be treated to an extravaganza to build anticipation for this special time of year.

On November 22, Port Macquarie's CBD will come alive with festive season spirit for the open air Christmas celebration.

Port Macquarie-Hastings Council and the Port Macquarie Chamber of Commerce have teamed up to organise the massive community celebration which culminates with the lighting of the giant Christmas tree.

Chamber of Commerce Board member, Janette Hyde,  said the aim is to create something special for the region

"We're hoping this year will set a precedence to keep such an event going for many years to come," Mrs Hyde said.

Banners will line the streets and palm trees will be lit up to enhance the festive atmosphere.

Schools and community groups have been invited to be part of the Santa parade down Horton Street, dressing up in all things jolly and bright.

Registrations close this Wednesday.

Before the parade, a Business Santa Fun Run starts at 6.15pm along Short Street, it is free to enter, you just have to register your business and don your Santa hat or costume to be able to pound the pavement.
