Two 10-metre high Christmas trees will adorn the City of Canterbury Bankstown from later this month, with one in Anzac Mall at Campsie, and the other in the forecourt of the Bankstown Library and Knowledge Centre.
Mayor Khal Afour will officially switch on the lights on the Bankstown tree on Sunday 26 November.
"This event is always a highlight of the year for our community, especially families and young children," Mayor Asfour said.
This year’s program kicks off with a performance by the popular children’s show, PAW Patrol, followed by Christmas carols, sung by members of the Canterbury-Bankstown Talent Advancement Program (TAP), and the screening of the movie ELF.
"This will be a great opportunity for the community to come together and celebrate Christmas," Mayor Asfour said.
"More and more residents and visitors have been attending each year and I expect hundreds will turn out on 26 November.
"And, of course, such an event would not be complete without a visit from Santa."
The official switching on of the lights on the giant Christmas tree will occur at 8pm. They will then come on, at that time, each night until just after Christmas.
Thousands of people are also expected to attend the annual Carols in the Park, at Wiley Park on Sunday 10 December.
The evening will be held at the Wiley Park Amphitheatre from 6.30-10pm. For more information on both Christmas events, go to cb.city/events
