THERE will be fun-filled and exciting activities for families to enjoy in the lead-up to Christmas.
Fairfield Council, the Canley Heights business community and restaurant committee have planned the Canley Heights Kids Christmas to be held on Friday.
Children will be treated to an after-school party where there will be rides, tasty treats and the opportunity to meet Santa and see his Christmas sleigh.
Horsley Park will then come alive on Saturday with a Christmas carols show.
The community is encouraged to bring their picnic blanket and sing along to all their favourite Christmas songs at Horsley Park Reserve from 5.30pm to 10pm.
A Fairfield Council spokeswoman said Fairfield mayor Frank Carbone will then turn on the Christmas tree lights at 8pm.
"The lights have been placed on two conifer trees, which were planted by two mothers in honour of their sons who went to war and did not return," she said.
There will be more festivities in Cabramatta on Saturday with carols.
Residents are encouraged to visit the city centre, which will feature the Anglican church choir singing classic Christmas carols.
There will also be a visit from Santa.
The spokeswoman said Bonnyrigg Public School would hold its annual Community Christmas Celebration on December 20.
"This event offers activities for all ages, which include Christmas carols with a choir and band, talent show and craft workshops," she said.
