Stallholder Map – Christmas in the Park

Memorial Park will be bustling from 5.30pm with market stalls, children’s rides, the smell of popcorn and hot food as Christmas music is played from the Rotunda. Children can have their face painted and jump on the bouncy castles, ride the merry-go-round, chair-o-plane and enjoy the laughing clowns. Market stalls will be the perfect place to do some Christmas shopping offering: toys, candles, children’s clothes, jewellery, t-shirts, collectables, gift-ware, party supplies, craft, art, Christmas nibbles and gourmet condiments. Also enjoy ‘Thermomix’ demonstrations and henna body art.

Bring your deck chairs and pinic rugs, get into the NeON and Christmas dress-theme and make a night of it! The Port Pirie Christmas Pageant starts at 7pm but before you line-up in your favourite position on the pageant route, be sure to allow time to enjoy some delicious hot food from the great range that will be available on the night. Everything from home-made Oo-cook, hot gourmet potatoes, schnitzels, BBQ sausages, Welsh food, Asian food, hot chips and more.

Children can have their photo taken with Santa once he’s finished his Pageant parade duties and will be available at the Photo Booth tent from 7.45pm-10pm. Kathy Gould of Hip Photography will be taking the photos and you will find her at the entrance of Memorial Park from Gertrude Street. Photo sessions will be limited and cost from $15 per photo shoot and if you miss out on the night, that special photo with Santa can be booked right up until Christmas with Hip Photography.
