Known as ‘Light Up Esk’, the event will start at 5pm with a lantern making workshop and ham wheel spins, with the latter activity featuring 30 hams and other prizes to be won.

A dress-up competition with prizes on offer will start at 6pm, before the arrival of Santa at 6.30pm.

This is soon followed by the chance to have a free photo with the jolly man in the red suit.

The lighting of the tree will take place at 7pm, before a second lantern making workshop is staged from 7.30pm, followed by karaoke from 8pm.

Other attractions throughout the event will be food trucks, a sausage sizzle, market stalls, and roving carols from the Esk Community Choir. Proceedings are expected to wrap up at about 9pm.

Also this Friday, raff les will be drawn at the Esk Grand Hotel at 8pm as part of the fundraiser for the following night, courtesy of the Lions Club of Esk.

First prize will be a two-night stay for up to six people at The Stonehouse Retreat, while second prize is a Christmas hamper valued at more than $500.

Third prize will be a Queensland State of Origin jersey signed by Mal Meninga, and fourth prize will be a mixed hamper.
