A Christmas shopping extravaganza is coming to the villages on the weekend of the 13th and 14th December, 2014.
All are invited to come along and enjoy a fabulous range of great festivities, in-store events and experiences. Santa and his helpers will be visiting Paddington, Glebe, Potts Point, Newtown, Green Square, Surry Hills and Darlinghurst and there'll be live entertainment on the streets too.
A village wide "best shop window" Instagram competition is also being held for the first time. Shoppers can tag their favourite shop window display #sydxmas #bestwindow and go in the running to win a $2,000 Qantas travel voucher. The business voted "best window" will win a $5,000 Red Balloon adventure voucher, courtesy of the City's principal Christmas partner, American Express.
Lord Mayor Clover Moore said the campaign highlights what a great place the city and its villages are to shop, dine and celebrate Christmas with family and friends.
"I believe our 2014 Sydney Christmas program will attract visitors, increase pedestrian numbers and make our city the number one shopping destination for Christmas in NSW," the Lord Mayor said.
The City has also extended its Christmas program to include new projection sites, more decorations and unique Christmas precincts.
From big name retailers to local boutiques across the city's villages, Sydney is packed with offers, entertainment and activities for shoppers this festive season.
