Celebrate all things Christmas with a street festival!

This family friendly event is packed to the brim with themed activities, entertainment and fireworks.  

The Lighting of the Christmas Tree Street Party is one of the most popular family friendly events on the City’s annual events calendar. Join us for hours of nonstop entertainment featuring local musicians and performers, children’s activities, Christmas decoration creation, crafts and bouncy castles.  

Children can meet Santa, Mrs Clause and their little helpers in person before they join Mayor John Bowler in lighting the Christmas tree, which will be followed by a spectacular fireworks show.    

All the children’s entertainment and activities at the event will be free and there will be lots of food and refreshments for sale from local businesses and community groups.
