Let there be lights – 90,000 for Christmas
Rather than climbing down a chimney, Santa might opt for a change and take the lift to the top of the Sky Tower.
SkyCity starts the silly season with a host of festivities and the big fella himself is even flying in for a visit.
After having a photo taken with Santa atop the Sky Tower anyone looking to post their Christmas wish list in style this year can post their letter in Auckland’s highest letter box at 220m up.
The tower will be
lit green and red, and Sky City will be decorated with more than 90,000 fairy lights.
From December 8 to 24 Auckland’s well-known Dragon’s Breath Singers will perform carols and Christmas songs in the main SkyCity atrium.
The winning designs from SkyCity’s: Create the Best Christmas Tree Ever competition will also be adding some Christmas cheer on the Sky Deck.
