A street near you, now until Christmas.
Why not drive around your local suburbs one evening and enjoy spotting the Christmas lights? Whilst there are some very extravagant displays on homes in some of the outer suburbs (Kids About Perth has a good list here) I like seeing the simpler (ok, sometimes not so) ones in our local streets just as much. The two homes on the corner of Clifton Cres and First Ave in Mount Lawley are some of my personal favourites and don’t forget to check out Beaufort Street’s first Christmas Tree on the corner of First Ave too.
Is there a local event that you know of coming up that I’ve missed? Leave us a comment and let us know.
