City lights up for Christmas
Sofi, 9, Bjorn, 8, and Jai Twaddle, 5, were among those who turned out to see the Sharpe Avenue Christmas lights.
There was music, entertainment, food, lollies and lots of festive cheer at the lighting of the Sharpe Avenue Christmas Light Walk last Friday night.
The lights display was turned on by City of Karratha Mayor Peter Long with the help of Santa Claus and local children. Patrons also enjoyed live music and carols by local musicians, a fundraising sausage sizzle, and a visit from Santa, who received letters and gave out lollies.
The lights will be switched on every night at Karratha Quarter, from 7pm-10pm, until Tuesday, December 27.
