Christmas Feature: Lighting Leedy

TAKE a break from everyday life and be transported into a magically mesmerizing fantasy world at the 2016 Light Up Leederville Carnival tomorrow,  Sunday December 4.

The 2016 Light Up Leederville Carnival will use solar energy to power all stages, leaving all diesel generators behind, to be more environmentally friendly.


Carnival-goers will be immersed in enchanted raining lights as they stroll down the Leederville Light Walk at Carr Place, which features a five-metre-high and eight-metre-wide LED geodesic dome, interactive projection displays and the stunning LED Luna Leederville angel wings that must be seen to be believed.

For the younger ones, Kidsville spans the Oxford Street reserve and skate park and boasts glitter face painting, sand art, inflatable sports games, sideshow alley, nature play and the highly anticipated favourite Junk Craft activity.

The visual feast will be topped off with the official Light Up ceremony at 7.45pm when Vincent mayor John Carey turns the summer lights on.

The carnival takes place from 4pm – 9pm.


Perth becomes a wonderland

Santa will roam the city handing out goodies every weekend from November 26, and daily from December 21.

The RAC Christmas pageant starts from the corner of William Street and St George’s Terrace on Saturday December 3, which is the same day  An Outback Christmas kicks off, bringing Santa’s workshop down under for family-friendly crafting on Forrest Chase.

On Saturday December 10 the WA Symphony Orchestra will enchant thousands for a night of music under the stars, while you can look forward to another night of music, the ’IGA Carols by Candlelight’, on the following Sunday, December 18.
