Forrest Chase unveils Christmas wonderland in the city
Forrest Chase’s iconic Christmas-themed window displays are making a return, drawing on the feelings of excitement, anticipation and nostalgia as families await the annual ‘big reveal’ of Christmas windows at department stores.
The Christmas windows will again follow the enchanting tale of The Adventures of Bobo and Mouse - an teddy bear and mouse duo that embark on an epic journey across four windows that stretch along the upper Forrest Chase walkway.
In addition to the stunning Christmas windows, Myer Forrest Chase will also launch its Christmas activations on Friday – with a bigger and better version of its annual Santaland event, as well as ‘Monty’s World’ a dazzling 2021 Christmas digital display that is part of the City of Perth’s annual Christmas Lights Trail.
