Chinatown will come alive on Friday 8 December for the Christmas Street Party, presented by the Broome Chamber of Commerce and supported by the Shire of Broome and local business community.

Festivities will run from 5pm-8pm and feature a gift market, Carols by Candlelight, Roey carpark Christmas Party, live nativity scene and kids Christmas Wonderland on Male Oval. 

Entertainment will include local choirs and performers and a visit from Father Christmas.

BCCI CEO, Jael Napper, says the event has been made possible thanks to hero sponsors the Roey Hotel, INPEX Ichthys LNG Project and Footprint Cleaning who have pledged a combined $14,000; a further $6000 raised by the local business community; $12,000 of in-kind support from the Shire of Broome including road closures, waste and traffic management; and the Chinatown Revitalisation Project contribution through the Late Night Trading Trial.

“Broome is a warm place at the best of times, but the warm, fuzzy feeling you get seeing such generosity from the business community is worth all of our time and energy to deliver this event again this year,” Ms Napper says.

Broome Shire President, Harold Tracey, says the Chinatown Christmas Party is always a wonderful community event, and it’s great to see the business community coming together with the Shire to make it happen this year.

“The final event of the Chinatown Revitalisation Project Late Night Trading Trial for 2017 has also been timed to coincide with the Christmas Party and so those resources will also go toward making this a memorable event,” Cr Tracey says.
