This festive season will be filled to the brim with things to do, see and enjoy across the Parkes Shire. Christmas events will kick off on Friday, 2nd December with the Parkes Christmas Parade, followed by Sparkle in the Park UpMarkets and outdoor movie, The Santa Clause, in Cooke Park. As the sun sets, the Parkes CBD will be ignited with illuminations and projections across buildings and streetscapes. On the same day, Peak Hill will come alive for the Meet You Up The Street Festival with street stalls, music, shopping and family fun.
