Mackay and Whitsunday Life


Mackay’s festive spirit will soon be on full display as Mackay Regional Council staff will begin installing Christmas decorations this Saturday (October 28).

The long lead time is necessary to ensure the decorations are in place for the festive season and so that work can be done at times that won’t inconvenience the public.

The installations will be completed each weekend from now until early December, with most of the banner and pole unit installations completed in the early hours or mornings.

Motorists are asked to take care when driving, as staff will be working close to the road during the installations.

This year’s Christmas decorations will include:

• Christmas tree at Calen next to the RSL building (October 28-29 installation)

• Christmas tree at Sarina in front of the library (November 4-5 installation)

• Christmas tree in Walkerston in Anzac Park (November 12 installation)

• Christmas tree and garland at Bluewater Quay (November 18 installation)

• Christmas tree at Mirani in Anzac Park (November 26 installation)

• 116 banners

• 62 pole units

Mackay’s Christmas tree will be located at the Bluewater Quay and installed on the 18th November
