Christmas in the City

 Christmas in the City will be back again this year, however it will be spread over two weekends to reduce crowds in response to Coronavirus and the need to continue practicing social distancing.  The Street Parade will be held on Sunday 6 December from 5.30pm and will complete a longer loop than in the past to allow spectators to spread out more while watching the festively decorated floats and groups pass by.  Then on Sunday 13 December from 12pm the festival will commence in various locations throughout the Bunbury CBD with The Apprentice and Traineeship Company Carols Concert kicking off at the Graham Bricknell Music Shell from 4.30pm.
