SUBIACO’s Rokeby Road will come alive with Christ­mas spirit, when the Subiaco Christ­mas Night of Lights takes over this month .

The in­au­gu­ral event will have Subiaco cov­ered in Christ­mas dec­o­ra­tions and an 11m-high Christ­mas tree. The event will in­clude free en­ter­tain­ment, food, bev­er­ages and hopes to en­cour­age peo­ple from all over Perth to Subiaco.

“We can­not wait to light Subiaco up with the magic of Christ­mas this month; the whole street will come to life in a way never seen be­fore,” he said.

“This will also be a fan­tas­tic way to cel­e­brate the Rokeby Road streetscape im­prove­ments. The Christ­mas dec­o­ra­tions will re­ally shine a light on the new and im­proved com­mu­nity space.”
