The people of Pingelly are getting well and truly into the festive spirit this year as they transform the main street into a huge Christmas Village for the first time ever.

Pingelly will light up with Christmas events and displays for the whole month of December, and the community wants as many people as possible to come visit and get involved with the festivities.

The Christmas Village will light up the historic main street with many different attractions, including a festive Candyland, Santa’s sleigh, a huge Christmas tree, a life-size grinch, larger-than-life Santa Clause, a walk-through star and arch, light projections and thousands of fairy lights.

The Christmas Village will be officially opened on Friday 2 December with an incredible night of events including the lighting of the 6 metre Christmas tree, the official lights switch on, Christmas markets, Christmas Tree competition, face painting and late-night shopping and dining.
