The CBD’s Christmas festivities will this year take place mainly at Federation Square and the laneways.
Due to the Metro Rail constructions at City Square, the former epicentre of Christmas celebrations, Federation Square will be home to the 16 metre illuminated LED Christmas tree.
This year’s festivities will also feature an augmented reality app Santa’s Lil Helper, which will transform Degraves St, Howey Place and Federation Square into Christmas scenes.
Children will use this mobile app to reunite Santa with his phone to help with Christmas deliveries in the laneways.
The massive Christmas bauble will return to Federation Square and new decorations including Santa’s throne and sleighs will be unveiled in the CBD.
The locations for Christmas projections will be announced soon.
The Christmas celebrations in the CBD will take place between November 24 and December 25.
