Meet our Elves – and other fun and festive things to do

Christmas Light


Visiting Christmas light displays has become a fun tradition for all ages in WA. Our Synergy Xmas Lights Trail will light up on 1 December 2018 and we’re thrilled that those displays will bring so much joy to so many people! Here are some other fun things to do in the lead-up to Christmas.

Organise a street party

A street party is a great way to get together and celebrate the festive season with your neighbours! Check with your local council first to see if you need a permit or if there is anything else you should be aware of, they may be even able to close off an area of the street for you. Some councils may even loan you a mobile BBQ or award a small grant towards the cost of a street party sausage sizzle if your event meets their conditions.

Volunteer with a community organisation

Christmas is a busy time of year for many of us – but sadly it’s not a fun time for everyone. That’s one of the reasons we’re supporting Lifeline WA through our Xmas Lights Trail. WA is home to a long list of incredible organisations who do amazing work to help people, animals and the environment.

Volunteering is a rewarding way to have fun, get involved and make a difference. There’s sure to be a cause close to your heart which would love some extra hands in the next few weeks for events, hamper preparations or donation drives.

Meet our Synergy Elves at these community events

Over November and December, you’ll find our Synergy Elves at a number of community events around the metro area. They’ll be having some fun promoting our Synergy Xmas Lights Trail, supporting Lifeline WA and hosting some games where you could win some Christmas merchandise*.
