The Lions Club of Toowoomba West will once again stage the Toowoomba Christmas Wonderland in December.
Toowoomba’s Christmas Wonderland (TCW) has now grown into Queensland’s biggest public Christmas lights extravaganza with over 50,000 people visiting the lights display each & every year since 2006. In all, close to $300,000 has been raised for charity and the Lions Club of Toowoomba West is keen to keep this established event going.
The major beneficiaries of TCW include: Toowoomba Hospital Foundation, Lifeline and Toowoomba Hospice, with a number of other local charities also to benefit.
The Toowoomba Regional Council has again approved the use of the Botanical Gardens for this year’s event and in fact, has granted even more park space for the extra lights displays. The site is excellent for families, being close to the CBD, with adequate parking and an ambiance that is ideally suited for holding a Christmas lights wonderland.
Already many sponsors have committed to the event.
TRC Mayor Peter Taylor officially launched this year’s event at a function at City Hall recently. Toowoomba’s Christmas Wonderland will run from the 3rd December to 24th December 2011 in the Botanical Gardens area of Queens Park.
