"We've got something for everyone from rides, animals and face painting for the kids, and of course Santa. There's also Christmas gift stalls, live entertainment, dancing and performing - it will be an afternoon of fantastic fun, entertainment and exciting activities," Michelle said.

"The local businesses will be open and Fair goers will have the chance to win a $3000 Visa Card simply by buying goods over $10 from participating businesses in the mall.

"It starts at 5pm and will continue onto 9pm after Mayor Margaret Strelow lights the Christmas Tree at 7.30pm."
