Sun is returning for the Xmas shopping
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.
