Following on from Friday’s windy weather, the re-scheduled annual Devonport Christmas Parade will happen on Wednesday night, 11 December, from 6.30 p.m.
This year the parade will traverse a route taking in James Street, Victoria Parade, Bluff Road and Clements Street.
With a range of local floats entered by businesses, schools and community and sporting groups, it is a perfect way to kick off the festive season in Devonport.
And, of course, Santa will be there to wish all a very Merry Christmas.
So, bring the whole family for this fabulous event.
There will also be a Christmas Market on the corner of Bluff Road and Clements Street from 4 p.m. until 8 p.m.
It will be a busy evening tomorrow night. The paranaple arts centre – home of the Town Hall Theatre and the Devonport Regional Gallery – will launch its 2020 program of exhibitions and performances at 6pm.
The full 2020 program will be unveilled and it is set to be an exceptional year-long season of cultural events for the North-West Coast.
It offers an exciting mix of major Australian performing arts and touring exhibitions, exceptional award-winning performance and plenty of high-quality local productions and exhibitions.
Included in the offering will be a critically acclaimed stage production of George Orwell’s intensely powerful novel Animal Farm by the shake & stir theatre company.
The Gallery will be presenting the biggest program in its four-decade history, featuring work by some of Tasmania’s leading contemporary artists.
The launch is also an opportunity to get a glimpse of the year ahead and a chance to become a member and book premium seats to any number of performances.
The launch will be followed by complimentary refreshments in the Main Gallery.
