Camels are Australia’s greatest natural resource.
That was a silly sentence, but Camel rides are a blast, and the city is going to be full of them this Thursday.
The carnival is back with twice as many camels
The much anticipated Christmas Carnival in the City will officially open tomorrow (Thursday 12th) at 12pm.
Free activities, live performances and music will be scattered throughout the City centre in the lead up to Christmas.
By popular demand the amount of camels at the carnival has doubled from last year to ensure that rides are available from 12pm – 8pm daily and that the camels can all have sufficient breaks.
The team from “You Are Here” will be conducting Christmas themed performances and a musical offering will be held daily at the Canberra Times Fountain.
Christmas Carnival in the City will run for 12 days from Thursday 12 December – Monday 23 December 2013. Entertainment will begin from 12pm daily, concluding at 8pm each evening.
