The Brighton Christmas Block Party was held on Saturday 27th November 2021, with 1700 people attending from little ones to older children at heart enjoying the free entertainment and food provided by local businesses and services.
Food stalls, musical performances, drawing and crafts, Santa photos and a six lucky door prizes kept the crowds entertained and made for a joyous start to the festive season.
“It was definitely the largest turnout we’ve ever had,” said James Norman, General Manager of Housing Operations. “One of Centacare Evolve Housing’s community wellbeing goals is to establish and support structures that strengthen connection between people, and the Brighton Christmas Block Party provides the ideal opportunity.”
Claremont College, the Brighton Primary School Choir, St Paul’s Catholic Parish, Make-believe Children’s Entertainment and the Tasmanian Chinese Buddhist Academy provided entertainment all day long and the younger crowds enjoyed a train ride, face painting and of course, a gorgeous Christmas Tree Wonderland display.
Seventeen local services came together to make the afternoon possible, making it the biggest celebration yet! Plans are already underway for next years celebration, local businesses are invited to contact Elise Parker at Centacare Evolve Housing if they wish to be involved in 2022.
