Let's light it up for Santa

Light up and get into the Christmas spirit! We know the cancellation of Forrest Place’s lighting ceremony is a real letdown, so here are a few Christmas light events to liven you up until the arrival of Santa!

Where: Various locations

Yep, the traditional switch on is gone, but your familiar streets, laneways and parks are now bathed in enticing light every evening from 6pm until Christmas Day.

Lights in the Heights

When: 15th - 23rd Dec

Where: 31 Chadlington Drive, Padbury

For those who aren’t just spending quality time with their partner, we've also found a Christmas rejoice for you and your family. This year, the C3 Church will continue to woo us with Lights in the Heights. There’ll be a UV glow room with UV face painting, a white Christmas tree wonderland and a Christmas train set - bring it on! By the way, it’s a completely free event, however you still need a ticket to avoid disappointment.
