Strand park has been transformed and it's time to step back in time for Townsville's Stable on The Strand.
The popular Christmas event was forced to push back bump-in due to a wet weekend, but many hands have made light work and it's ready for you to enjoy this afternoon.
Locals can see the festivities from 5:30pm-9:30pm daily until Saturday December 22 at Strand park.
Last night performers put on a Preview Night for seniors and those with disabilities so they could enjoy the night crowd free.
Go along and see the Town of Bethlehem, local performers, and food vendors from 5:30pm tonight.
Rides will also be at the event to entertain the 40,000 visitors who expected to enjoy Stable on the Strand in it's 17th year.
