Penrith lights up for Panthers

Penrith City Council has lit up the city’s Civic Centre in honour of the Penrith Panthers’ NRL grand final team this week, with the building ablaze in the Panthers colours. 

Each night this week and right through to the NRL Grand Final the Civic Centre has been awash in the red, yellow and green of the Panthers – widely known as the ‘liquorice all-sorts’ colours. 

Penrith Mayor, Tricia Hitchen said Council and the whole city was showing its colours this week ahead of the big game.

“I’m so excited as I look around to see our city bathed in the Panthers colours, whether that is Council lighting the building and flying the Panthers flag, to the many businesses in High Street, Penrith and Queen Street, St Marys,” Mayor Hitchen said. 

“I want to commend the residents too who have gone to great lengths in decorating their properties. There are some wonderful examples and there is no doubting the passion for our team in this city.” 

Panthers’ supporters are being encouraged to go online and get their free tickets to the family-friendly live site at St Marys. From 3.30pm on Sunday 2 October at Kokoda Place Car Park and Coachmans Park in St Marys, fans will be able to grab a seat and watch the big screen showing all the action of Grand Final day.  

There will be food trucks, entertainment, and face painting for the kids at the alcohol-free event.
