10 THINGS TO TO DO THIS WEEKEND IN CANBERRA! Every Monday for nearly five years,…
“The Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before! What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store. What if Christmas… perhaps… means a little bit more!”
Of course, there’s more to Christmas than just the shopping, but wouldn’t it be delightful to have yours done before December even begins? This year, South.Point Tuggeranong is helping you and your family tackle Christmas shopping in the full festive spirit, enlisting the help of none other than the Grinch himself.
While all retailers will of course be open for you to get your Christmas lists sorted, South.Point has recruited some of your favourite Christmas characters to get you in the holiday cheer this weekend.
The Santa Arrival Parade will begin at 9am in Centre Court, where Santa will be joined by Reindeer, Nutcracker and Ballerina, Christmas Elves, Christmas Stilt Walkers, Christmas Carollers, and Ben and Holly from Ben and Hollys Little Kingdom. Enjoy the parade, meet and greet the festive ensemble and treat your little ones to free face painting. This year features a brand new Santa Set, with some traditional elements brought back for the perfect Christmas snaps.
At 11am, Santa’s Workshop will be open for arts and crafts. The Grinch will also be there, up to his usual Grinch tricks and available for meet and greets.
Grinch fever will continue into Sunday, when Limelight Cinemas will be showing a special preview screening of The Grinch at 10am.
Whether it’s the 1996 animated film, or the 2000 live action version starring Jim Carrey, watching The Grinch is a Christmas tradition in many families. Now, there’s a new generation favorite to add to the collection. The 2018 iteration is Illumination and Universal’s eighth fully animated feature stars Benedict Cumberbatch as Whoville’s most cynical grump. Take the whole family to enjoy the heartwarming holiday classic. Book your tickets online, or visit the South.Point Facebook page for more information on how you can win a double pass.
