Christmas on the Coast
Celebrate the festive season on Redlands Coast at Christmas on the Coast 2020.
Bring your family and friends to Raby Bay Harbour Park in Cleveland throughout December and enjoy a spectacular wonderland of festive cheer.
Hosted by Redland City Council, Christmas on the Coast will combine the annual lighting of the city’s Christmas tree and community carols events into a five-day ticketed celebration from Wednesday 16 December to Sunday 20 December at Cleveland’s Raby Bay Harbour Park.
From 4.30pm to 8.30pm on each day of Christmas on the Coast, there will be live stage entertainment by some of Redlands finest local talent, children’s rides and family activities, along with the lighting of the city’s Christmas tree, movies in the park and a boutique Christmas market complete with food vendors.
Special features include a traditional carousel, inflatable jumping castles, and the kids will even be able to get a socially distanced photo with Santa. There will also be an ‘ice-skating’ rink at the park next to the event for use during the day and evening.
To meet COVID safety requirements, bookings are essential, with each evening restricted to 1500 people. Tickets are $5 per person or $15 per family (12 years and under free) and include free train travel to and from the event.
The five days of Christmas on the Coast will be a great time to ‘support local’, while also employing local performing artists and helping Redlands traders and suppliers, many of whom have had a very tough year.
And, as a charity event, you will be helping some of the most vulnerable in the community with the proceeds of ticket sales supporting local causes such as domestic and family violence support services
