The District to host a series of Christmas activities


By Katie Johnson

The District Docklands is celebrating the festive season with a series of light displays, shopping offers and giveaways throughout December.

Kicking off on December 13, the District Makers Market will receive a Christmas makeover to showcase all of the local businesses who have been doing it tough this year.

The market will feature a pet portrait station where you can create a one-of-a-kind Christmas present, as well as live music, workshops and a Christmas neon instillation by artist Carla O’Brien.

More light installations will also be featured as part of the District’s IMAGINARIA display, which will showcase a giant inflatable bubble, a futuristic light maze and an interactive play experience which will run until January 31.

On Sunday, December 20 The District will host A Day of Carols – an all-day event which will feature singing, dancing, music and entertainment from artists including Thando, Emily Rose and Crystal CLVB DJ band.

The carols event will raise money for Kids Under Cover, a charity which aims to prevent youth homelessness.

As part of The District’s shopping offers, customers who spend more than $100 at any store on weekends in December will get to spin a wheel to win an instant store gift card and go in the draw to win one of two $1000 shopping sprees.

CEO George Karabatsos said that The District was looking forward to celebrating the festive season after a trying year.

“After a challenging year for everyone, we are delighted to host live entertainment and activities for the whole family, alongside our wide range of shopping and dining options,” Mr Karabatsos said.

If you’re looking for a family-friendly New Years, the District will be hosting an evening of entertainment on December 31 including roaming street performers, fire performers and DJs.

Free 90-minute parking will also be available to all visitors during December.
