This will be the fourth year the Village Green has been transformed into ''Winter Wonderland'', open from 10am until 10pm daily for the duration of the festival.

The rink will open at 10am on Friday.

Tickets - $10 for children, $20 for adults or a family pass for $50 - will be available at the ticket booth on site.

The 40th festival, sponsored for the 25th consecutive year by American Express , will officially be opened on Friday night, on Earnslaw Park.
