City of Palmerston is set to sparkle this Christmas with the city coming to life like never before.
For the very first time, Council will be hosting a free, three-week long program of events and light installations to bring the community together this Christmas.
The new Palmerston Christmas Wonderland is an interactive experience aimed at boosting morale within the community, supporting local businesses in Palmerston by activating spaces, as well as making sure that we are COVID – 19 compliant.
Santa recently texted City of Palmerston and said that he can’t wait to ride the Express Train in Goyder Square and meet all the children who have been so good this year.
Festivities commence on 4 December 2020 with the Christmas Wonderland in Goyder Square opening on 18 December 2020 until 24 December 2020, 5pm to 10pm.
