THE Light Up Leederville Carnival is taking a break this year, but there’s still plenty to keep kids entertained in Leedy in the lead-up to Christmas and New Year.

If the name is anything to go by The Arty Farty Children’s Christmas Party, run by town team Leederville Connect, is sure to be a hit.

There’ll be a bunch of arty stuff to do – draw on the street without getting arrested, giant party games, Father Christmas will swing by and Vincent mayor Emma Cole will turn on the Leederville Christmas lights.

All the schools that usually perform at Light up Leederville will be there, with the Highgate and Aranmore primary school choirs.

The Mount Hawthorn Primary school kids will be singing in Italian.

They’ll be joined by the tiny dancers from Tippy Toes and young musicians from the School of Rock.

The free arty farty party is on December 2 at 5pm, with the Christmas lights switched on at 7.30pm.
