Gunnedah’s famous High Street Christmas display is back for another year.
Sisters Linda and Carol Owers will be setting up their Christmas extravaganza in High Street again this year and are inviting the community to come and enjoy the display.
All proceeds from the entry costs will go to the Gunnedah RSPCA, which rescues and rehomes local animals, and runs community initiatives including desexing programs. This is the second year the Owers’ sisters have supported the local branch, with about $8000 raised in 2017.
“Months and months of hard dedicated work has gone into these displays, which really promote the Christmas spirit,” the RSPCA said.
“This display is not to be missed.”
The Owers started the display more than 20 years ago in front of their home at 9 High Street after the birth of their niece Grace.
The display is set-up in two front yards and one full block, which includes Santa’s workshop, elves workshop, monster house and a Christmas house. It is wheelchair-accessible.
Entry costs for the Christmas display are $1 for person under the age of 12 years and $2 per person for persons over 12 years of age.
The Owers are looking for volunteers to help between 8pm and 10pm from December 14-26. To help, phone Linda Owers on 0427 422 517.
