Welcome to our third ‘Christmas Tree Showcase’. With a ‘Kiwiana’ theme it is a display not to be missed.
View up to 200 Christmas Trees created by community groups, corporate partners, schools, kindergartens, family & friends.
A unique wooden ‘Kiwi Bach’ set amongst an array of traditional, alternative and ‘Kiwiana’ themed Christmas trees is the focal point of our display.
Visit our ‘Retro Caravan Café incorporated into our exhibition area this year. Sit and enjoy iconic ‘kiwi’ fare and enjoy the ambience of our display. The use of retro china teacups, tables, chair and décor will generate nostalgia for some and for others it will be an educational opportunity.
Take a photograph at our event and upload to our social media using the event hashtag. A poll will be taken to choose the most liked photograph with the winner receiving a $200 donated prezzie card..
'Spot it' activity for families is back. Families loved this hand out activity last year. Find all the photographed decorations on the card throughout the display.
