ONE of Perth⿿s best Christmas lights displays will again turn a usually quiet Atwell Street into a hive of activity.

Kanji Loop will come alive tonight for the Christmas Lights for PMH fundraiser, with more than 2000 people expected to visit the street each night until Christmas.

Local resident Jason Pearce said it was incredible to see the effort put in by locals.

“With it being a loop, it’s only local traffic and usually very quiet,” he said.

“But for one month of the year it comes alive. It’s fantastic.”

In 2014 more than 50 homes joined the Christmas Lights campaign and raised a record $122,287 for the PMH Foundation.

Visitors will again be asked to donate what they can.

Scoop Property’s Nancy Bird, a Kanji Loop event sponsor, said people can purchase fundraising raffle tickets for the chance to win an overseas holiday voucher and spending money worth $2900.
