SUBIACO’s Rokeby Road will come alive with Christmas spirit, when the Subiaco Christmas Night of Lights takes over in November .

The inaugural event will have Subiaco covered in Christmas decorations and an 11m-high Christmas tree.

The event will include free entertainment, food, beverages and hopes to encourage people from all over Perth to Subiaco.

Event organiser UpBeat Events creative and operations director Ken Allen said it was great to be part of the event.

“We cannot wait to light Subiaco up with the magic of Christmas this month; the whole street will come to life in a way never seen before,” he said.

“This will also be a fantastic way to celebrate the Rokeby Road streetscape improvements. The Christmas decorations will really shine a light on the new and improved community space.”

Subiaco Mayor Heather Henderson said she was delighted to collaborate with UpBeat Events to present the Subiaco Christmas Night of Lights.

“It’s a wonderful opportunity for people to get into the festive spirit in the heart of Subiaco, with carols, free activities, creative and handcrafted stalls and Christmas cheer for the whole community,” she said

“I look forward to joining everyone, young and old for another joy-filled Christmas in Subiaco.”

The Subiaco Christmas Night of Lights will take place on Thursday, November 24 from 4pm-9pm.
