Marine Terrace was transformed into a festive wonderland earlier this month for the third annual Christmas on the Terrace.
More than 4000 people headed down to celebrate the festive season, with the main street lined with stalls selling locally made products, live music and family-friendly activities.
City of Greater Geraldton Mayor Shane Van Styn said this year’s Christmas on the Terrace was a huge success.
“A big credit goes to all our local retailers and stallholders who really got into the spirit and helped make the event what it is.
Geraldton’s Fringe World Festival, Funtavia, was officially launched at Christmas on the Terrace, with a large crowd gathering in the laneway pop-up bar between the ACDC gallery and Headspace.
During the launch, local comedians had two minutes to pitch their Funtavia show to the crowd, offering a taste test of what to expect in February.
With 27 performances jam-packed into three days, Creative producer Julian Canny said it would be tough picking what to see.
“We’ve made it so you can’t physically go to everything,” he said. “Mostly because we love FOMO (fear of missing out), but also because we’re evil.”
The winners of the City of Greater Geraldton’s Banner Photography Competition were also announced during the event.
Sixteen people won the #whyiloveGero category and 11 Mid West locals took out the whyiloveMully category.
The banners will be hung along Marine Terrace in Geraldton and Jose Street in Mullewa.
