Christmas Lights Switch on and Perth Festival of Chocolate

Christmas in Perth begins the weekend of 21st and 22nd December. Events begin at 12 midday on Saturday 21st, with street parades, music, games, dancing and lots more. For the children, there’s Santa’s grotto to visit, plus a whole list of events just for kids, including Frozen the Tribute Show. The Santa parade begins at 5.30pm and the big lights switch on is at 6.15pm. On the main stage there are some big acts – including my old favourites Showaddywaddy and Billy Ocean!

As if that excitement wasn’t enough, on the same weekend is Perth Festival of Chocolate, a big outdoor festival taking place all day Saturday and Sunday. There will be stalls selling chocolate and … chocolate, oh and … chocolate. As well as actual chocolate, there will be demonstrations and tastings plus other chocolatey stuff like candles, cosmetics and more besides. It’s all happening in Perth City Centre on Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd November.
