New event brings extra Christmas magic

A new event the weekend before Christmas will round out an extensive calendar of festivities in the City of Karratha this holiday season.

Christmas on the Green presents a family evening of children’s activities, live entertainment and carols alongside the final night of the Yaburara Heritage Trail Light Spectacular.

City of Karratha Mayor Peter Long said the free event would provide an extra serving of holiday cheer ahead of the Christmas break.

“Christmas on the Green is going to be an evening of festive fun for the whole community. People can come down with a picnic, enjoy some quality entertainment, soak in the extra Christmas magic and really get into the holiday spirit,” Cr Long said.

“Working together with Rio Tinto and other local businesses, not only for Christmas on the Green, but for many events on the Christmas in the Pilbara calendar means our local community is spoilt for choice when it comes to events right across this festive season,” he said.

Christmas on the Green will be held from 6pm, Sunday 20 December at the Karratha Leisureplex Oval. Visit for more detail.

This event is presented by the City of Karratha and proudly supported by Rio Tinto, Onsite and Cleanaway.
