Lighting up Perth for Christmas

Christmas LightsThe two summer staples wanted a piece of the Christmas spirit, so, they are donating a sum total of $7,000 to help the Downtown Heritage Perth Business Improvement Area and town hall carry the cost of the Christmas lights program.

The Perth Rotary Club’s Ribfest, and the Stewart Park Festival are both donating $3,500 toward keeping downtown Perth lit up like a Christmas tree this holiday season.

Both festivals decided to answer the call: “Why don’t we step up and give back to the community?” said McKenty. “People do appreciate the lights.” The $7,000 will go a long way, but will only cover a portion of the lights on display into the new year. “There still will be costs beyond that. Each year the BIA tries to add new trees.”
