St Mary's Catholic Church grounds will be filled with the Christmas spirit this Saturday when the parish holds its first ever Hilltops Healing Christmas Fete.
With the fun and activities kicking off from 3pm the event is expected to be huge with over 30 stalls that include face painting, a white elephant sale, live entertainment, Christmas Carols, handmade gifts, arts and crafts, books, food, three inflatables for the kids and much, much more.
The fete has been organised to bring the community together after what has been a difficult couple of years between drought, mice, fire, floods, dust storms and then COVID.
The fete is also doubling as a fundraiser for St Vincent de Paul as a way for the parish to give back to those in the community who really need it.
"Initially we were looking at the Parish and we thought we should do this wider and then we started talking about how the community throughout the whole Hilltops is really suffering and we would like to do something for the Hilltops community," organiser Phil Mitchell said.
"We just wanted to reach out to everybody and make sure they were okay.
"So we started talking about a fete and then we called it the Hilltops Healing Christmas Fete, which is what our focus is."
Those in attendance are able to purchase red hands for $5 with each finger on the hand worth $1, making it a fun and easy way for kids to keep track of how much they have spent and how much they have to spend.
Fr Jiss Sunny is especially eager for the fete to take place and is getting ready to cook up his own storm as he takes part in the fun.
Entertainers from Young, the Hilltops and Canberra will be on hand to make sure there is plenty of fun throughout the fete.
