What an absolute ripper of a time we had on Friday 1st December in Bulcock Street for the Caloundra Christmas Street Party! If you missed it, well, let’s say you missed out. We’re here to give you the run down on the street party of the year that brought our community together in the most festive and local way possible.
Let’s talk about the incredible lineup of performances that graced us. Each act brought their A-game to the festive Street. From the heartwarming melodies of the Golden Beach School Choir to the jaw-dropping acrobatics of the Aerial Energy Circus School. The Sunshine Coast Concert Band had us tapping our feet, and the Break Dancing Elves were, well, breaking it down like nobody’s business.
Aussie World brought their trademark fun, and the Sunshine Coast Performing Arts College showcased some seriously impressive twirls. Coastal Caring Clowns had us in stitches and participating with their antics, while the Sunshine Coast Cheerleading squad brought the energy to new heights. Let’s not forget about Frank & Louis, Cora and Lochie, Andrea Kirwin, James Norman, and the enchanting Christine Henderson on the Piano—talk about talent!
Of course, no Christmas party is complete without the main man himself—Santa Claus! Santa made his way through the crowds, spreading joy and making dreams come true for kids of all ages as he made his way through Bulcock Street. The excitement was palpable as kids lined up for a chance to chat with the jolly old fellow, a sneaky pic here and there, and maybe a few last-minute requests for the perfect gift.
Bulcock Street transformed into a bustling wonderland, a hive of activity. Many retailers stayed open to welcome the additional foot traffic, offering a plethora of goodies for those looking to get some early Christmas shopping done. The Street Fair team pulled out all the stops with a jam-packed market, featuring a variety of stalls offering everything from handmade crafts to delectable treats.
Our community came together to celebrate the commencement of the Festive Season. The Caloundra Christmas Street Party wasn’t just an event; it was a testament to the vibrancy, talent, and community spirit that make Caloundra truly special to us.
To everyone who attended, performed, and participated in making this event a success, a massive thank you! The enthusiasm and energy made the Caloundra Christmas Street Party 2023 an unforgettable experience for all involved.
Merry Christmas Caloundra! The festivities have only just begun!
