The festival starts with the Cooroy Fish n Chips Santa Sack Races, where every child who participates wins a prize!
After that the crowd gathers down the sides of Maple Street to watch the Bendigo Bank Street Parade with this year's theme being “Past, Present and Future”. Full of floats, costumes, decorations, and maybe even a few treats, it is always a crowd favourite. Winding its way up Maple Street and back down again. Do you think you can pick who will win this year’s coveted Best Float Award?
The ever-popular East versus West Tug-of-War competition starts shortly after the Parade with The Shed @ Cooroy putting up an East Side team against Cooroy Computers West Side team. The East Side Tuggers have a strong list of wins under their belt but who will win this year?!
And as if that wasn’t enough, the big man in red, Santa Clause, will be making an appearance so he can chat to the children of Cooroy and give them all a sweet treat sponsored by Gelignite Jacks.
There are also free rides including the Giant Slide, Cup and Saucer and Jumping Castle sponsored by Cooroy Rag; Mini 4wds and Animal Farm sponsored by Madill Holden & John Madill Toyota; a foam pit sponsored by Cooroy Legal Centre; free face painting sponsored by SPV Accounting, free popcorn sponsored by the Leather Doctor; and stilt walkers Wythes Realty.
The Cooroy Supa IGA stage in Apex Park will have live entertainment throughout the evening to keep the festive spirit alive.
Later in the evening the Cooroy RSL Fireworks display will light up the sky, giving a truly magical display.
