Frankston’s Christmas Festival of Lights is BACK!!!

Get your Santa hats on, because we’ve got proof that Christmas is coming!! Saturday 26th November sees the return of the hugely popular Frankston Christmas Festival of Lights and we are super excited because it’s the news we’ve all been waiting for!

The festival of lights holds a special place in the hearts of both residents and visitors to Frankston and for more than 20 years, the festival has been one of the City’s most significant major events, attracting thousands of people to launch the festive season.  

After a two-year hiatus, (thanks Covid) this much-loved festival is set to shine again with live entertainment, lights, and fireworks on Saturday, 26 November from 5-10pm at Davey Street, Frankston. The event will feature a Santa meet and greet, carols, the Bluey Christmas Live Experience, free theatre shows, various live performances, kid’s crafts, amusement rides, the Little Beauty Christmas Market, food vans and more.

This five-hour event is a bright, colourful and high-energy welcome to the festive season and with it’s dynamic offering, has cross-generational appeal and is enjoyed by children, their parents, grandparents, couples, friends and everyone in between!

“Sharing special moments with family and friends is what Christmas is all about. Finally, after two years of covid restrictions, we’re able to bring this much-loved festival back to the streets of Frankston, so we can share the magic of Christmas with those who matter to us most. I encourage you to get down early and beat the rush – our early birds will see the spectacular Santa’s arrival parade and get a jump start on their Christmas shopping at the market. Frankston Library Christmas activities also kick off at 4.30pm, if you really want to beat the crowd” -Frankston City Council Mayor Nathan Conroy

The iconic 130-year-old Norfolk Pine Tree will also light up Davey Street in a tradition that dates back 50 years and after the ceremony, the lights will be turned on at 8pm each night until early January.

“The traditional lighting of the tree marks the start of the festive season and is a moment that many in our community have looked forward to and missed. It brings joy to our residents and bolsters our Christmas spirit. Frankston’s Christmas Festival of Lights is an opportunity for us to get together as a community, celebrate the year that has been, and look towards the new year with positivity and enthusiasm. We’ve got a lot to be thankful for and a lot to look forward to, I want to personally thank Frankston City residents for their incredible resilience and spirit over the past two years. Let’s celebrate our many achievements in person while we reflect on another successful year.” said Mayor Conroy.
