Santa's Wonderland a Christmas success story

Thursday, 20 December

Santa’s Wonderland at 100 Molesworth Street has been a huge success according to Acting City Centre Manager Andrew Walker, who says thousands of people young and old have visited the display throughout December.

The city centre activation was part of Christmas in the Heart activities funded by the Lismore Business Promotion Program to bring visitors into the heart of Lismore and increase retail foot traffic.

Santa’s Wonderland included a space for photos with Santa, a children’s letter-writing station, free present wrapping, a Santa Cinema, Find the Elves competition and a grown-ups rest area.

The display also provided a place for Aussie pop star Samantha Jade to sign CDs and meet locals before the Carols in the Heart event on 9 December.

“We’re just so pleased with the response from the community – people were thrilled that their children had a place to go and really enjoy the magic of Christmas. The smiles on the faces of our visitors really says it all,” Andrew said.

“We had amazing support from local businesses for our Shop ’n’ Win competition and we have given away more than $15,000 in cash and prizes throughout December.

“Santa’s Wonderland has been hugely popular and exceeded all our expectations. We would like to thank everyone who has visited or supported this promotion and for those who haven’t yet discovered Santa’s Wonderland, please come and visit before Christmas!”

Santa’s Wonderland is open 10am to 4pm every day including Christmas Eve at 100 Molesworth Street, Lismore.
