IT’S time for Shepparton to sparkle and showcase the gifts and activities that are available in the lead up to Christmas. The Show Me Christmas in Shepparton campaign kicked off this week encouraging shoppers to experience the magic of Christmas in Shepparton.
The campaign is promoting Shepparton as a shopping wonderland, with the streets coming alive with festive cheer with events occurring across Shepparton throughout the month of December.
“This is the first time that there has been a fully co-ordinated approach to promoting Shepparton as THE place to get your Christmas gifts,” explains Shepparton Show Me Chairperson, Cr Les Oroszvary.
“Council, Chamber of Commerce, Marketplace, Riverside Plaza and Emerald Bank have all come together under the Shepparton Show Me banner to offer a full program of Christmas activities to attract people to Shepparton to enjoy some Christmas cheer and purchase their Christmas gifts at one of Shepparton’s many speciality and big name stores.”
You will be able to find Santa at one of his workshop locations whether it’s in the Maude Street Mall, the Marketplace or Riverside Plaza. The kids can have their photo taken with the big guy or just take the opportunity to tell Santa what is on their Christmas list.
There will be free jumping castles, roving entertainment, horse and carriage rides and face painting, just to name a few. Santa’s elves will be providing gift wrapping services for a gold coin donation. The elves will be located with Santa in his workshop locations. Just listen to the radio, grab a copy of your local newspaper or check out the Shepparton Show Me Facebook page to see the full list of activities on offer to help brighten your Christmas.
While you’re on the Shepparton Show Facebook page check out the range of Christmas bargains that are on sale across the city. Specials and Christmas ideas from local retailers will be promoted regularly.
