Spreading festive cheer
The Glenelg Shire is finding innovative ways to help spread the festive cheer this year, launching the very first ‘Light Up Glenelg’ campaign to celebrate busy summer season.
‘Light Up Glenelg’, which refers to the lighting up community spirit, will aim to unify and connect community members through a series of events, both online and physical. Glenelg Shire Mayor Cr Anita Rank said ‘Light Up Glenelg’ would reinforce the Glenelg Shire’s status as a premier events destination and would kick off with the annual lighting of the Christmas trees in Portland and Casterton.
“With the easing of restrictions continuing across the State, we are looking forward to entering a period of ‘COVID Normal’ in the coming months. However in lieu of our traditional Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve events, we will be hosting several virtual and smaller physical events to celebrate the festive season and light up the community spirit in the Glenelg Shire,” she said.
“This will commence with the annual lighting of the Christmas trees in both Portland and Casterton and followed by live virtual community events for Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve.
