Hooray, the sun is back and sum­mer is here! Last week we kicked off Christ­mas with a packed-out Har­courts Hast­ings City Night Mar­ket in the heart of the CBD. Thou­sands of you came out to visit Santa and soak up the Christ­mas cheer.

Our next mar­ket is on De­cem­ber 20 and is chock full of stalls to fill Christ­mas stock­ings. The Twin City Stom­pers will be fill­ing the CBD with Christ­mas tunes and we’ll have all your fa­vorite food trucks. It’s go­ing to be a fan­tas­tic way to cruise into the hol­i­day break so make sure you grab the fam­ily and come down.

In other Christ­mas news, Hast­ings City Christ­mas Count­down is back. We’re giv­ing away amaz­ing prizes ev­ery day be­tween now and De­cem­ber 22. We’ve got some se­ri­ously cool prizes lined up and you can en­ter to win ev­ery day. Make sure you keep an eye on our Face­book page @hast­ingsc­ity to en­ter daily draws.

Santa’s Won­der­land is now open op­po­site BJ’s Cafe´ in the cen­ter of town. The jolly man will be there Tues­daySatur­day un­til De­cem­ber 22. The Won­der­land is packed with in­tri­cately dec­o­rated trees, a Lego Christ­mas vil­lage and a selfie wall. En­try is free but if you would like to give back we grate­fully ac­cept food or coin dona­tions to Hast­ings Food Bank Trust who do amaz­ing work all year round, and es­pe­cially at Christ­mas, mak­ing sure that those in our com­mu­nity who need it have enough in their cup­boards.
