Aurukun held its Community Christmas Carols Evening on Tuesday 20 December 2011 and one of the highlights of this evening besides Father Christmas’ arrival, was the presentation of the prizes for the Christmas Lights Competition.
Because of Skytrans’ generosity in donating two return airfares Aurukun/Cairns last year and again this year, Aurukun Shire Council has chosen to call this annual competition, the Skytrans Christmas Lights Competition. Maureen Karyuka was the winner this year and she received her voucher from Aurukun Shire Council’s Chief Executive Officer, Mr John Japp.
The children had a great evening starting with the Jumping Castle and face painting and then the arrival of Father Christmas who was escorted by the police with sirens blazing.
Again this was a great evening of celebration for the Aurukun community.
