Christmas cheer arrives in Hume City!

Hume City is set to become a whole lot merrier with Council announcing details of its Christmas major events, installation of Christmas decorations and trees across the municipality and launch of a Christmas shopfront decorating competition.

Mayor of Hume City, Councillor Carly Moore said Council’s program for Christmas would spread festive cheer across Hume City.

“Hume City will celebrate the spirit of the season and our decorations will be on display from Thursday 21 November,” Cr Moore said.

“This year, Council will establish decorations in our new civic spaces, with a Christmas tree at the Hume Global Learning Centre - Sunbury and a giant Christmas wreath at the Town Hall Broadmeadows. There will also be a tree outside the Hume Global Learning Centre’s in Broadmeadows and Craigieburn.

“The community will feel the spirit of the season when visiting our customer service centres, leisure centres and libraries.”

Councillor Moore said local businesses would have an opportunity to contribute to the festive atmosphere by taking part in the Hume Christmas Shopfront Competition.

“Small businesses with a window shopfront are being encouraged to design a memorable Christmas window display between 19 November and 13 December 2019,” Cr Moore said.

“Along with helping to spread the Christmas cheer, it is an opportunity for Hume businesses to encourage local shopping in the lead up to Christmas. The business voted the Best Display, will win an overnight getaway at Marnong Estate!”

“Council will once again host its popular Hume Carols by Candlelight event at Craigieburn on Saturday 7 December.

“We will also host our Christmas in the Plaza - a free Christmas event in the Broadmeadows Civic Plaza on Friday 13 December and we are proud to sponsor Sunbury’s Christmas on the Green - a free Christmas carols event on Saturday 14 December.”
