Christmas is almost upon us and plans for our 'Christmas in the City' promotion are well underway. We are collaborating with the City Mission to launch Christmas on Saturday 28th November.
This will be a fun day for families to come in and see Santa punt down the Ōtākaro Avon River, from Margaret Mahey Playground right down to The Terrace, where the City Mission will then launch their spectacular 10m tall engineered tree. This is no ordinary tree and will add a real spectacle to our city over the festive season. Santa will then tram down to The Crossing where the children will be able so go and see him.
There will be Elves, Choirs, Face Painting and street entertainment to make the day something for the people of Christchurch to come in and enjoy. We have received excellent support from many of our members and if your business would like to do something to enhance the day, please let me know.
