THERE will be rides, music, and food on offer to visitors at Frankston’s Christmas Festival of Lights event this week.

The event is in its 22nd year, and will feature the switching on of the lights at Frankston’s century-old Norfolk Pine Christmas Tree followed by a display of fireworks.

The lights have been rigged by arborist Derek Lyn. “It’s an honour to be involved in rigging the tree this year,” he said.

Vuk (pictured), age 6, was offered a chance to check out the lights before they went up. He said “it was so cool. I can’t wait to see the star again when it’s on top of the big tree at the festival. There were so many lights but we loved the star the most.”

The festivities kick off at 5pm, 30 November at the Frankston Arts Centre precinct, Frankston Library, Davey Street and surrounds. The tree lighting ceremony begins at 9.15pm.

Entry is free.
