Fairfield City Council is inviting locals to get into the festive spirit, with a number of Christmas events being held at various locations across the City.
Christmas is a very important time for Fairfield City residents, and Council has spread the festive cheer right across our City by decorating an intersection near you!
The festivities will start with the popular lighting of the Christmas lights at 17 roundabouts and intersections with nativity scenes and lights commencing on Thursday 1 December 2022.
Fairfield City Mayor Frank Carbone said Christmas is a great time for families and the community to come together.
“Council loves to join in with our residents in spreading festive cheer and this holiday season our famous and ever-popular Christmas lights at roundabouts and intersections are on again delighting residents and evening commuters,” he said.
“The decorations look amazing at night, making the evening trip home just that little more joyous.
“This is an initiative that is unique to our City. Keep an eye out as you drive or walk around our City, or head out and enjoy the festive celebrations with friends and family.”
