We LOVE Christmas in Perth! The Christmas music is playing downtown for the month of December, the beautiful barrels have been decorated by the Perth BIA, our historic band shell is lit with lights, and our spectacular Crystal Palace is decorated with 40+ Christmas trees. We invite you to come and spend the afternoon shopping in Perth while you hum along to the Christmas carols and stay for dinner. After enjoying your delicious dinner, stroll under the 10,000 lights that create an amazing ambiance in our downtown. Our stores are open late Thursday evenings until 8 p.m. from now until Christmas, for any last minute gifts to put under your tree.
If you are here on Thursday, Friday or Saturday nights from 5-7, the Crystal Palace is open to the public to walk in and see our wonderful Christmas trees. If you come to Perth on another night, the trees are still lit in the Crystal Palace and you can wander around the perimeter of the building to see the trees decorated by our local businesses or community organizations. The Crystal Palace will be open Dec. 26-30 from 5-7 pm if you are visiting friends or family in Perth this holiday season.
We saw record numbers at our annual Festival of Good Cheer Dec 1st. As a community, all ages joined together to sing wonderful Christmas carols, enjoy delicious food by The Table and everyone took turns warming up by the roaring bonfire. The spectacular fireworks were a huge hit with both young and old. There is something about seeing the fireworks burst in the cold crisp air of a winter's evening.
Go to our video page to enjoy the wonderful fireworks that evening, and we will look forward to seeing you and your family on November 30, 2018 for the next Festival of Lights!
