It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and with COVID restrictions due to be lifted, it’s time for our community to come together and celebrate the Festive Season – and Santa agrees! The Jolly Man in Red is once again coming to town to take up residence at Santa’s Wonderland at the Lismore Regional Art Gallery.
Kathryn Gray Lismore City Council’s CBD Activation Officer said people of all ages are invited to step into this magical Santa’s Wonderland and enjoy fun festive activities between 8 December and 19 December.
“We are very excited that Santa has decided to join us again to help celebrate this wonderful time of the year,” she said.
“Come along and say hello to Santa in his wonderland, which will be open Wednesday to Sunday between 10am and 2pm, and after school on Thursdays between 4pm and 6pm.”
Santa will be available for COVID-safe photos, however bookings are essential. There will also be a sensory Santa photo session on Thursday, December 9 between 4pm-5pm for those with a Sensory Processing Disorder. The CBD will also once again come alive with Christmas decorations and the popular Find The Elf hunt. There will be special opportunities and prizes to support local shopping and enjoyment across the CBD.
As COVID-restrictions are not expected to be lifted until December 15, those visiting Santa’s Wonderland before this date and are over the age of 16, must be fully vaccinated. Please note, this may change with any updates to the NSW Government roadmap.
This is the fourth year Santa has taken up residence at his Lismore Wonderland. This year it is supported through Council’s Business Activation Plan.
