THE CITY OF BALLARAT CHRISTMAS STREET PARTY

Camp Street and the Alfred Deakin Place entertainment precinct
Join the festivities at the City of Ballarat Christmas Street Party in a new and
exciting location as we launch the festive season for 2011!
The Christmas Street Party is a free family event with lots of children’s activities
and an exciting line up of both local and national talent. Special guest is
Dani Venn from Channel 10’s MasterChef (Series Three) who will show local
children some of her favourite easy Christmas recipes.
At the Party, children can decorate their very own gingerbread man, write a
letter to Santa, have their face painted or hair sprayed Christmas colours and
join in the festive dancing workshops! There are special prizes to be won by
children dressed up as their favourite Christmas character.
