Nine Tonne Christmas Decoration

After a lack-lustre Christmas display in 2013, and an assurance from our CEO that things would be improved for 2014, we now have details of this year’s plans and they look quite impressive.

The highlight will be a huge 9 tonne live Christmas tree on Queen St. at the Victoria St. end of the road/mall. This will be backed up by a huge red bow across the entrance to the Meat & Fish hall on Elizabeth St. and the decoration (including lighting) of the pallet tree at the top end of the market on Peel St.

Around the market we will have Christmas themed stands with face cutouts for photographic opportunities, a special Christmas themed craft market on String Bean Alley each Thursday in December and a range of other activities including visits from carol singers.

Traders might like to start thinking about how their own stall decoration could link in with year's enhanced Christmas presentation so that the Christmas theme becomes an "across the market" experience.
