Bunbury prepares to skate into Christmas
The City of Bunbury is expecting up to 15,000 people from throughout the South West to attend this year’s Christmas in the City event on Sunday.
Events Officer Jade Evans expects this year’s biggest attraction to be the new artificial skating rink and “snow zone”, which will be packed to the rafters with artificial snow to play with.
“Due to the large amount of interest and excitement shown by the Bunbury Geographe community, we expect to see a lot of people utilising the artificial ice skating rink,” she said.
“However, we also know that heaps of people will line the streets to watch the Street Parade before they find a prime viewing spot for the Carols Concert presented by The Apprentice and Traineeship Company.”
Also new this year will be a live stream of the Street Parade on the big screen at the Graham Bricknell Memorial Music Shell, before a host of local and South West acts take to the stage for the Carols Concert.
Kids will be entertained all day with bouncy castles, a petting zoo, the Wollaston Lions train, Christmas cookie decorating and the chance to meet Santa or listen to a story from Mrs Claus.
Ms Evans said joining in on the fun-filled event was a great way to celebrate the holiday season with the community.
“It’s a great way to celebrate the start of the holiday season, and being a free event, you can bring the whole family along for a fun filled day.”
