Christmas in Perth 2018
Enjoy the festive event in the city this Holiday season and enjoy the beautiful Christmas lights around the city area. There will be Christmas activities for kids, a special one day Christmas parade, Christmas lights projection and trail, and for all the foodies: the much anticipated Twilight Hawkers Market. Find your Christmas Lights Trail map here!
Here's a list of some of the activities that I want to check out this year:
Save the Date to see Christmas Nativity
With live animals, beautifully sung Christmas Carols and more than a hundred performers, the Supreme Court Gardens will be the place to be between the 19th until the 21st of December. The Christmas Nativity story will be performed from 6:30 to 10 PM. Yes, it's FREE! Last year it was really amazing to see the park filled with families. Listening to the Christmas Carols together with a lot of people really gave me a magical feeling.
RAC Christmas Pageant
In true Perth tradition, keeping the Christmas magic going, the RAC Christmas Pageant is back on Saturday the 1st of December at 7:30 PM at St Georges Trc. Public transport might be a better idea to avoid the nightmare of trying to find parking. Better get to the city early, just in time for the 46th RAC Christmas Pageant!
Christmas Lights Trails
We don't have snowflakes in Perth, but the beautiful Christmas light trails carry with it a beautiful Christmas vibe. The lights trail will be available from Friday the 16th of November to the 24th of December from 6 PM onwards. If you click here, you can decide where you want to start the journey from. You might want to begin from Santa's Magical Castle at James Street Mall, Santa Train at Yagan Square, or at 140 William where they will showcase Jingle All the Way interactive stepping stones!
Christmas Lights Projection
This is one of my favourite activities last year. This year, the lively Christmas Lights Projection will still take place at St George's Cathedral! Don't miss out on it, it will be available from 7:30 PM to midnight. From here, you can quickly check the Council House across the road and see a group of giant illuminated kangaroos!
Christmas Food Offer
Check back with the Visit Perth website to see some special food offers from various different restaurants that will be provided this year. Fraser Suites will have Pampelle Ruby Rose Christmas Cocktail for $20 for two people, and the Stables Bar will offer $50 Christmas Spritz and Charcuterie for two. I was informed that most Christmas offers are under $30! How exciting! Also, don't forget to check out the Twilight Hawkers Market in between your Christmas shopping.
