You missed the biggest community driven Christmas event in Gungahlin! The Crace Christmas Carnival is back again this year with over 20 stalls, including market stalls (get some Christmas shopping done), food stalls (have you tried a ChocoBab?), community interest stalls, local sports and dance groups, amusement rides, live music, visits from emergency service vehicles, and even Mrs Santa!
