Deck the halls and cel­e­brate the fes­tive sea­son when Syd­ney Christ­mas kicks off this week­end. The month-long celebration in the lead-up to Christ­mas fea­tures a pro­gram packed with free and fun ac­tiv­i­ties. Santa will ar­rive in a cy­cle-driven sleigh and light Syd­ney’s most ma­jes­tic Martin Place Christ­mas tree on Satur­day night. Choirs will per­form at the Martin Place Christ­mas tree ev­ery night and in Pitt Street Mall on Thurs­day even­ings. Vis­i­tors can join in the fun by jump­ing in the life-size Lego Christ­mas sleigh at Martin Place for the ul­ti­mate Christ­mas snap. Cre­ated by Lego cer­ti­fied pro­fes­sional, Ryan McNaught, the sleigh is made with more than 10,000 Lego bricks. You can also walk through the Boule­vard of Light in Pitt Street Mall with a 62,000 light canopy twin­kling over­head and Christ­mas trees lin­ing the mall. But the fun doesn’t stop in the CBD. You can pop along to a free vil­lage Christ­mas concert at Rush­cut­ters Bay (Satur­day, De­cem­ber 3), Rose­bery (Sun­day, De­cem­ber 4), Alexan­dria (Satur­day, De­cem­ber 10) and Surry Hills (Sun­day, De­cem­ber 11). This is a great way to sup­port a wor­thy cause – Guide Dogs NSW/ ACT (which is part of the Syd­ney City or­gan­ised events).
