Event bosses are promising an evening of festive fun for all ages with entertainment dotted around town at various locations, including the Square and Darwin and Pride Hill shopping centres.
Last year’s popular lantern parade will also make a return, with a free lantern-making workshop taking place on November 17, from 11am until 4pm, in the Riverside Shopping Centre.
Participants are then invited to be part of the grand parade through the town on November 21.
