Pilbara News - - Lifestyle - Louise Alling­ham

Time to dust off the Santa hats and rein­deer antlers be­cause there are plenty of Christ­mas cel­e­bra­tions hap­pen­ing across the City of Kar­ratha and the Shire of Ash­bur­ton this month.

Shire of Ash­bur­ton pres­i­dent Kerry White said there were a va­ri­ety of fes­tive events hap­pen­ing across the re­gion.

“There is noth­ing quite like a Pil­bara Christ­mas where, de­spite our hot and of­ten wet weather and dis­tance from fam­ily, friends rally to­gether and cel­e­brate with a great sense of com­mu­nity spirit.”

City of Kar­ratha Mayor Peter Long said the city’s Christ­mas cal­en­dar would give peo­ple a great rea­son to stay in town this fes­tive sea­son.

“Over the past few years the City of Kar­ratha has ramped up our Christ­mas events cul­mi­nat­ing in this year’s ex­ten­sive Christ­mas in the Pil­bara events cal­en­dar,” he said. “The events bring young and old to­gether to ex­pe­ri­ence some Christ­mas magic right here and we are thrilled to, along with our part­ners, be able to present an­other ex­cit­ing year of fes­tive fun in 2016.”
