T'WAS the season to be jolly in the Rockhampton CBD over the weekend.

Festive spirit was at magical levels in East St on Saturday night as the second annual CBD Christmas Fair got underway.

Residents young and old turned out to watch the lighting of the big Christmas tree while a special appearance from Santa Claus had everyone excited.

CBD traders kept their doors open late while other attractions included the Handmade Expo Markets, animal displays from Cooberrie Park, fashion parades, face painting, food stalls, Bill's Amusement Rides, live musical entertainment and movies on a big outdoor cinema screen for the entire family to enjoy.
