Planning is well underway on Broome’s annual community Christmas celebration in Chinatown with the event happening on Friday 6 December from 4pm to 8pm.
The Chinatown Christmas Trails and Carols is proudly presented by Buru Energy, Go for 2 & 5 and the Shire of Broome, and will again bring together the popular annual community Christmas party with Carols by Candlelight.
The Christmas Trail will run around Chinatown from 4pm to 6.30pm with a host of fun family activities, entertainment, Christmas shopping, market stalls and Father Christmas. Then from 6.45pm to 8pm, Male Oval will come alive for Christmas carols with the Shire of Broome working with Broome’s combined churches, choir, school groups and performers to put on the event.
Broome Shire President, Harold Tracey, said the aim of the event was to bring the whole community together to celebrate at a special time of the year. “I’d encourage everyone to get involved in our annual Christmas celebration which is always a great opportunity for the community to gather together before the end of the school year and before many people head away for Christmas,” Cr Tracey said. As well as Chinatown traders, all Broome businesses are being offered the opportunity to come on board to host street activities around Chinatown during the trails.
Anyone wishing to become involved should contact the Shire on 9191 3456 or [email protected]wa.gov.au.
