Look out for the special edition 'My Christmas' guide put together by council and My Weekly Preview. Available from Thursday 23 November at the usual My Weekly Preview locations, as well as council's customer service centers and libraries.
- The My Christmas publication contains event information that is sourced from grant and event permit applications to develop a calendar of Christmas activities and is correct at time of publishing. Program changes and updates may be on this page if council is notified of any changes.

Lighting and decorations
More than 270 Christmas and New Year themed street banners are installed along road corridors throughout the region. Council decorates two Christmas trees in Nambour and Caloundra outside the council buildings.
There are 20 locations with council decorated trees adding Christmas cheer to our local communities. All council decorated trees use LED lighting to align with council's commitment to sustainability. The majority of trees will be illuminated from 1 December, with some local communities hosting events to officially turn on the lights as part of the festivities. The lights should be shining in all trees by 10 December.
