Ever wanted to ride on the biggest travelling Ferris Wheel in Australia or race a lap with your mates on the massive Dodgem Cars circuit? Maybe win a few prizes in the show games or get a sugar fix with fairy floss and snow cones?

For over two weeks during the festive season there will be good old fashioned family fun to be had down in Lions Park on the Tin Can Bay foreshore.

From December 22 to January 6, the Tin Can Bay Christmas Carnival will come to life from 5pm every evening, apart from being closed on Christmas Day.

“We’re hoping to stamp this carnival on the Cooloola Coast calendar to keep visitors and locals entertained during the holiday period,” Tin Can Bay Chamber of Commerce President Jess Milne exclaimed.

There are numerous rides for all ages including the Cha-Cha and Bungee Trampoline, sideshow games and classic carnival food on offer so bring the family down and enjoy some fun by the water.

Fireworks Double Day in the Bay

As part of the awesome Tin Can Bay Christmas Carnival there will be crackers of epic proportions.

Christmas Eve will feature a visit from the red suited Father Christmas with his big sack of giveaway goodies then the sky will light up with a colourful fireworks display about 8:30pm.

To bring in the New Year sit back and enjoy some local entertainment while the kids let loose in the carnival. So the whole family can enjoy the spectacular, the traditional fireworks will let fly about 9:30pm.

For those in the Tin Can Bay area with pets, keep them safe and secure during both fireworks events to avoid the heartache of a furry runaway.
