Christmas in Ararat Rural City

Posted Thursday 7 December, 10:12am

Christmas spirit has once again spread across the Ararat Rural City, with Council's decorations and installations helping to spread the joy of the festive season.

Some recent favourites return including the giant flower boxes in the shape of presents, which will bloom throughout December and 'Aussie Christmas Tree' in High Street which sees the large gum tree decked out in LED balls.

Colourful decals have brightened up the Ararat Regional Library windows and bus shelters around town, as well as along the footpaths in Barkly Street, while there are a number of Christmas theme words throughout the rural towns.

The rural halls around the region also feature wreaths and red bows, with the Lake Bolac Information and Business Centre housing two giant present light boxes on its front lawn.

The final decorations have been installed just in time for the annual Ararat Carols by Candlelight this Saturday, December 9 from 6pm at Alexandra Gardens. Enjoy the free event for all the family with carol singing, children's activities, food and fun.
