Christmas lights in Perth skies

The Town of Perth has just received notice that Santa’s Elves have been at work preparing the night skies for the big guy’s visit. They are expecting Christmas Eve to be particularly challenging this year, so have decided to light the route in advance. In the evening, if you cast your eyes towards the water tower, you will see what they have done for Perth.

Mayor Fenik states, “Those Elves are an industrious bunch and always seem to find a way to get everything ready for Santa to deliver on Christmas Eve. We are relieved to know that he will be navigating safely with this additional lighting in Perth!”
