Hard to believe the end of 2017 is on the horizon but here we are in December. 

This weekend is packed with things to see and do in celebration of our community with Edge of the Bay. 

Tomorrow starts off with a free yoga session and breakfast by Roadwise, followed by the national bowl skating competition, King of Concrete.

From 3pm a superb line-up of local musicians and big names from Perth will be performing at the Soundshell for the Illuminate Music event. 

The Christmas street decorations and Christmas tree will also be switched on.

On Sunday a special Edge of the Bay Community Markets will be held at Museum Village from 8.30am-1p. 

There will also be skate clinics on Sunday at the Esperance Skate Park.

The annual Seniors Christmas Dinner will take place at the Esperance Civic Centre  in the evening to wrap up the weekend.

The following weekend is the highly anticipated Esperance Christmas Pageant!

The Community Christmas Pageant is an annual street parade of towed or self-propelled floats and community groups.

It has been coordinated by the Shire of Esperance for the past 13 years.

The parade is a way of celebrating the festive season in Esperance by way of public entertainment and celebration.

It is a wonderful opportunity for local service clubs and schools to set up food stalls to raise money and awareness of their contribution to our community.

The Museum Village Markets will also feature prior and after the parade.

The pageant will take place at 3.30pm on Sunday December 10.

Santa will attend the pageant and be available for photos.

There will be community floats, free face painting and it will also be possible to send a letter to Santa at Santa’s Postbox that will be installed at the Museum Village on the afternoon of the pageant.

Children who provide their name and address will receive a letter from Santa.

If you’d like to get involved, you’ll need to be quick!


Registration forms are available on the shire website at ​under the Christmas pageant event.
