Great news! The Manly Harbour Christmas Lights Festival is back for its third year with an even bigger, more exciting program.

The fun will begin on Saturday December 2 at 3:00pm when the stage at Little Bayside Park, Manly, will come to life with entertainment for kids and adults. Plus, there’ll be a visit from the big man in the red suit and a special laser light show!

This will mark the official beginning of weeks of Christmas celebrations with the lights shining brightly throughout Manly Village. Businesses will be decorated with lights and homes in the area decorated in their quest to win the major prizes kindly donated by our sponsors and local traders.

One of the highlights of the festival are the Manly Harbour cruises, which will leave at 7:00pm and 8:00pm Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights from December 2 to 16 from the William Gunn Jetty to see the twinkling lights in the harbour and the boats lit up, all in the spirit of Christmas. Manly Harbour, where else would you rather be?

When you purchase your harbour cruise ticket you will also receive a shopping voucher that is redeemable in the Manly Villlage at participating outlets.

So, mark your calendar for an event not to be missed. The program will start at 3:00pm, with carols and entertainment from our local dance studio, all while we await the arrival of Santa! A family-friendly movie will start at 6:00pm.

Bring your picnic rug and hamper or grab a tasty takeaway from the many local cafés in the village and join in the Christmas Harbour Lights launch party.
