FIREWORKS, Christmas markets and a long table lunch are just some of the events planned for City Beach thanks to a recently established community group.

The City Beach Activation Association aims to activate the City Beach precinct and make it community friendly, safe and fun.

The association is holding its inaugural annual general meeting on September 17 and despite only forming in late March, is already working on eight initiatives.

These include New Year’s Eve fireworks, a festival of lights featuring markets, carols and light show in the lead-up to Christmas, sandcastle competition, long table lunch fundraiser for City of Perth Surf Life Saving Club and clean up of the dunes and beach.

It is supporting Sunset Wine and Brews run by CMS Events in February and Town of Cambridge works to provide mobility impaired beach access and foreshore re-vegetation and maintenance.

President and Odyssea City Beach owner Fabio Hupfer said the group believed activities would help enhance “a sense of community and belonging” at City Beach.

“Community members and local business people saw the need to create a group of like-minded people to organise and make events happen for the benefit of the local community and all visitors to City Beach,” he said.

“It is the most beautiful beach with new comprehensive facilities and plenty free parking that is not utilised.

“We would like for City Beach to be the most outstanding go to beach in metropolitan Perth area.”

The meeting is from 5pm on Tuesday, September 17 at City of Perth Surf Life Saving Club.
