Those wanting to kick off Christmas early can partake in a ‘Vintage Christmas Out the South’.
On Sunday, the Napredak Club in Piper Street will be hosting a multicultural Christmas party and everyone is invited.
There will be a visit from Santa, gingerbread house decorating, carols, dancing, music, bocce and lots of fun to be had.
Organiser Nardia Keenan said the day will get underway from 3pm with gingerbread house decorating.
“We have one kit left for anyone interested,” she said.
“We had a lot of interest in the gingerbread houses and it ranges from children to adults.
“Everything is supplied in the kits, from templates and lollies.
“Once they’ve been decorated they will be put on display with vintage miniatures that we have.
“Then the decorators can take them home to use for their centrepieces on Christmas Day.”
Nardia said she holds an event at the Napredak every two to three months.
She said all the “Iches” will be back to play bocce during the party.
“All the former local Iches like the Alagich’s and Ravlich’s will make a return to the Napredak and they are looking forward to playing bocce.”
Nardia said the party isn’t limited to South residents.
“Everyone is welcome to come, we will have food, there is a bar and there will be drinks for sale.
“We will be selling traditional Rakija.”
Rakija is a collective term for fruit brandy popular in the Balkans.
“Santa is coming and we will have music from the Village Strummers, as well as harp and piano and multicultural dancing.
“There will be carol singing and children will be doing a sign language demonstration.”
Those attending are encouraged to bring a salad or a sweets plate.
“It is appreciated but not required.”
The party officially starts at 4pm and if anyone is interested in seeing Santa they can inbox the Facebook group - Out the South Traders - facebook.com/OutTheSouthTradersBrokenHill
