Penrith City Council has announced details of its free Christmas in the City event series this December.
Triangle Park in Penrith will play host to two events that are guaranteed to bring Christmas cheer to young and old with the Twilight Markets and Outdoor Cinema.
The Twilight Markets kick off at 6pm on Friday, December 2 with a fantastic showcase of local makers’ products on offer – the perfect place to get some unique Christmas gifts for family and friends. There will be free face painting, kids’ art activities, live music and a special appearance from Santa on the night.
Positioned in Triangle Park, attendees are just steps away from local restaurants in the heart of the City where they can eat in or grab a takeaway in the park, as well as enjoying dinner and dessert from a range of food trucks.
Christmas in the City: Outdoor Cinema starts from 5pm on Saturday, December 10 with the family classic, ‘The Grinch’ (2018), with ‘The Santa Clause’ (1994) commencing at 7.30pm.
Attendees are encouraged to dress up in a festive theme and with free face painting on offer – it’s a great way to complete the costume. Free popcorn for the first 200 people is provided as well as dessert trucks with sweet treats available for purchase.
Penrith Mayor Tricia Hitchen said she is excited to see Triangle Park host two new, free and family-friendly events in the Penrith CBD that focus on getting into the festive spirit.
“Penrith City Council is a supporter of events that give our community the opportunity to have some fun, embrace the season and to get together with family and friends,” Cr Hitchen said.
“The Christmas in the City events are a great way the community can enjoy a free night out in the heart of our CBD with entertainment and activities for the kids. The Twilight Markets are a chance to get your Christmas shopping sorted by supporting the many wonderful local businesses and makers that we have in our City.
“The Outdoor Cinema is an ideal way to get into the festive spirit as we relax and enjoy fun, family-friendly movies as a community.”
