A petting zoo, amusement rides, kid-friendly entertainment, Santa and more will delight at Christmas in the Hills at Bella Vista Park Farm on Wednesday, December 12.

Members of The Mounted police, Hills police, the SES and the Rural Fire Service will all be attending the popular community festival.

There will also be plenty of food trucks and coffee carts to fuel hungry tummies during the evening.

Gates open at 4pm. There will be kids-friendly entertainment on stage before the start of the carols by candlelight at 7pm featuring a choir and 49-piece orchestra. A spectacular fireworks display will bring the evening to a close at 9pm.

Christmas in the Hills is supporting three local organisations working with young people in the Hills: Foster Care Angels, Learning Links and Hills Community Aid.

Tickets are $8 (kids under 2 free) and can be purchased from the Christmas in The Hills website.
