Switch on of Christmas Lights will occur on Thursday 10th December when the lights are switched on by the new Mayor of Fremantle Brad Pettit. From 7.00 pm celebrations commence at the Fremantle Town Hall/Kings Square with a choir and Scottish Piper.
At 7.30pm the choir and piper move on through the Mall, Market St and down Essex St, then across to the tree at the Esplanade. Here the Mayor, counting down from ten will initiate the illumination of the tree!
This lighting will remain operational between 7,30 pm and 1.00am every night until the removal on Sunday 17th January 2010.
