All the splendour and surprise of Christmas has been beautifully wrapped into a month-long celebration and is on its way to Frankston City. Frankston City Council CEO Phil Cantillon said Frankston’s Magical Christmas would see a series of enchanting events rolled out across the city’s suburbs. “Things are getting better and the future is bright so why not enjoy a month of Christmas magic as we wave 2020 goodbye,” Mr Cantillon said.
Frankston’s Magical Christmas will be launched on Saturday, November 28, with a Christmas concert to be streamed from the Frankston Arts Centre. As part of the show, those tuning in will be treated to the spectacular lighting of the 100-year-old Norfolk pine on Davey St.
“We know the tree-lighting is a tradition many in our community hold dear,” Mr Cantillon said. “Although we can’t gather together for the occasion this year, prerecording the special event is a way of bringing the magic to you and your family wherever you are.”
Frankston’s Magical Christmas will continue until Christmas Eve and include a decorations trail, 12 days of Christmas carols, Christmas health and well-being activities, crafts, workshops and competitions, and StoryTime sessions hosted by Frankston City Libraries, with special appearances by Santa.
“Our Christmas elves are also working on a special walk-through experience for the Frankston Arts Centre,” Mr Cantillon said. “I hear it is going to be quite the magical wonderland. And remember to shop local this Christmas and support our businesses to get back on their feet.”
