Christmas is calling Perth! I, myself am itching to put up the Chrissy tree and decorate the house in cheesy festive gear, and it seems the City of Perth have the same idea! The City of Perth Christmas Lights Trail are launching this Friday, the 15th of November at 6pm for its third successful year, coinciding with the Perth Makers Market’s Twilight at Yagan Square: Christmas edition. The trail will include 27 dazzling Christmas light installations and decorations all over the City and East Perth, making for the perfect evening out for the whole fam alongside the festive markets.
If you haven’t experienced the Christmas Lights Trail before, it’s a super-fun way to see Perth in all its glittering glory, with 3 different mapped out journeys (it can get way too tricky to try and see all the lights in one night!). The Perth Makers Market Twilight at Yagan Square edition will feature 2 of the 27 stops, the Lifeline Christmas Tree and the Constellation Tunnel, which is looking like one of the best grammable spots on the trail! One of my favourites from last year’s trail was the giant festive kangaroos down by St Georges Terrace, although I think this year is set to smash all of our expectations!
Get your Christmas gift shopping done early this year (because how many times does Chrissy creep up on you and leave you with no time for shopping!?) at the Twilight at Yagan Square Markets, where from 4pm – 9pm, you can explore an extensive range of locally hand-made wares and unique pieces under twinkling fairy lights. Get down early at 4pm to make the most of the markets whilst leaving enough time to explore the city’s lights and take plenty of snaps. Easily accessible by train, the markets lie right next to the Perth Underground Station, or if you’d rather drive in, there are plenty of parking garages nearby.
Some of the epic stallholders for the Twilight at Yagan Square Market include The Cookie Box (I can vouch personally for these guys, their cookies are to die for!), Unicorn Naturals, The Gallery J, Crafty Hearts, Pip & Pepper, Pure Apparel and TONNES more including jewellery, clothing, art, homewares and delicious gifts. There will also be live entertainment and activities for the kids, making this Perth Makers Market set to be one of the best yet!
Make sure you head there early to browse to your hearts content and see some of the epic light and decorations on the Christmas trail, tagging #perthhappenings for your chance to be featured on our socials! We’d love to see all the amazing gifts on sale and if you come across something you love please share with us!
