Usually Mandurah Christmas celebrations began in December but the season cheer will start earlier this year.
The Christmas pageant, and ‘switching on’ lights will be on November 30, to make the season a bit longer, which will be a new tradition for the City.
Mandurah’s Christams celebrations will wrap up on New Year’s Eve with fireworks.
A City of Mandurah spokesman said they were seeking ideas from businesses and the community.
“We want business and community groups to share their ideas with us, and help us compile the calendar of events” he said.
“It might be as simple as a Christmas feast at a restaurant or community groups singing Christmas carols.
“There are already good ideas coming including a special Christmas flotilla – and of course there will be the canal Christmas lights.”
“Another great idea is working with local artists to dress local shop windows.
“People can also look forward to lots of food trucks and special theming for the Mandjar markets.”
Mandurah mayor Rhys Williams said Mandurah has become an important draw-card for tourists.
“I am really happy the events team at the City are looking to work with the community and in particular with local business because the best ideas always come from the community,” he said.
“This initiative is just one in a series that works to activate the city centre, boost business and ultimately supports more jobs for our young people.
“If you have a good idea for a Christmas event your business wants to run as part of Christmas in Mandurah I encourage you to contact our events team.”
