Christmas in the City

The annual Christmas celebration combines the street parade, festival and carols concert. Held on the second Sunday in December each year, Christmas in the City invites the Bunbury-Geographe community to celebrate the festive season.  It features free activities and entertainment for the whole family. Participants line the streets of the CBD to watch the parade of colourful floats pass by, then make their way to Graham Bricknell Music Shell to sing along to Christmas carols.
