What will you be doing this Christmas season? Driving around looking at the pretty lights? Roasting chestnuts on an open fire? Rushing around looking for an 11th hour gift for that relative you forgot existed? Or perhaps you've been too busy to figure out your plans for the last month of the year.
One thing's for sure, however: Anyone who lives in real estate in Bunbury already has their Christmas plans sorted. Bunbury's annual Christmas in the City event will be held again this year, complete with the Christmas parade and evening carols.
The festival will be held on December 13, and will kick off at 3 p.m. The parade will start at Ivey Street at 5:30 p.m., before finishing at Bicentennial Square an hour later. Following that, 7:30 p.m. will see the start of the singing of the carols, for which the City is organising everything from dance groups and singers to theatre groups to take the stage.
"It will be our role to create that great flow throughout the whole event, and to support anyone – no matter their skill level – to be part of Christmas in the City," said Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts alum Jayden Williamson, who will lead the performance.
"We'll be looking for the right person or people for the right song, so we would encourage those interested to give it a go and audition."
So who knows? Whether you're a local home owner or are living in a Bunbury rental, if you pluck up the nerve to give it a go, you might end up being the star of the show.
For those less keen to work their performing muscles, the festival will also feature the usual line-up of crafts and Christmas markets, as well as an interactive digital art exhibit. It should prove to be a great night!
