The Christmas Shoppe is also open in the Taradale Town Hall from 10am to 8pm. While in town make sure you take a stroll up Gloucester St and take-a-look at the Wooden Christmas Tree Community Art Project and enter the People’s Choice competition.
“Thirty-six gorgeously decorated wooden Christmas trees will be on display giving Taradale a real festive feel, thanks to the schools, individuals and artists who decorated them. By voting for your favourite you could win $100 of Resene vouchers for yourself and $200 worth of Resene vouchers for the favourite school.”
