Bigger is better when it comes to decorating at Christmas

BANKSY and Brad from Sea FM love their Christmas bling.

And when it comes to decorating the Christmas tree, Banksy's advice is the bigger the better when it comes to lights.

"More is more," Banksy said, while decorating Brad with a bit of tinsel.

Brad prefers more of a personal touch, admitting his mum still had a paddle pop star he made for the tree in Grade 2.

Banksy and Brad put a few finishing touches to decorations in the East Street Mall on Friday, getting into the Christmas spirit ahead of the CBD Christmas Fair next Saturday from 2-8pm.

The mall will buzz with live entertainment, stalls, food and lots of fun.

Local business operator Michelle Hayward said there would be something for everyone with rides, animals from Cooberrie Park, fashion parades, face painting, fairy floss, and Santa will be ready to pose from some great photos.

Also, it will be a chance to do some of that essential Christmas shopping.

Rockhampton Mayor Margaret Strelow will officially light the Christmas tree at 7.30pm.

"It's a wonderful opportunity for families to get together for an afternoon and enjoy the Christmas spirit," Cr Strelow said.
