Roving gingerbread men, giant Christmas characters and a free concert will bring festive fun to the City of Gosnells annual Jingle All the Way on Saturday 12 December.

Centennial Pioneer Park in Gosnells will be transformed into a magical Christmas extravaganza and interactive trail, culminating with a two-hour concert and spectacular light display in the Civic Centre gardens.

The City’s Mayor David Goode said this free all-ages celebration, which would also feature food trucks and plenty of activities, had everything to make this event merry and bright.

“There’ll be so much to see and do for all ages, including a special visit from Santa himself, making this a December to remember,” he said.

“Christmas is such a wonderful time of the year to share with family, friends and community and this year’s Jingle All the Way will be extra special with a two-hour concert and Christmas carols.”

From 5pm to 7pm, a trail of activities throughout the parkland will keep families entertained, with ‘pony reindeer’ to pat, feed and ride, Christmas crafts, a fairies’ glitter garden, snow machine, photo booth and food trucks.

You can also meet giant Christmas characters, including stilt-walking gingerbread men and rollerskating presents, see Santa and the Snow Queen and enjoy the sweet sounds of an acapella trio and horn-playing elves.

At 7pm, join the Real Life Church Choir for all your favourite carols and then it’s time to sing the night away with Daren Reid and the Soul City Groove.

Winners of our annual Safe City Christmas Lights competition will also be announced.

Jingle All the Way is proudly sponsored by Batter Worlds, so be sure to get your special Battery World flame-free candle on the night.
