Article posted: November 30, 2018
As a way to thank the community, Camberwell traders are hosting their much-loved annual Christmas Family Day on Saturday, December 15.
The Camberwell shopping precinct will be decorated with festive cheer with a variety of entertainment, a visit from Santa, and, of course, the chance to be involved in the community’s favourite Where’s Rudolph? competition.
With free entertainment for all ages on the day, it’s also an opportunity to take time for choosing Christmas gifts for your loved ones.
Christmas Family Day checklist
Mark your diary on Saturday, December 15 from 11 am – 3pm for festive fun in the Camberwell shopping precinct and be sure to:
- Snap some memories at the Christmas photo wall (located outside the Camberwell Fresh Food Market)
- Enjoy riding in an antique fire truck with Santa
- Get your face painted as your favourite Christmas character
- Listen to live musicians and entertainers roving the streets
- Take home a marvellous creation made by a balloon modeller
- Take part in the Camberwell Fresh Food Market AR experience
- Find Rudolph and his friends hidden around Camberwell and enter our Where’s Rudolph? competition.
You can also find the event on Facebook here, so be sure to mark it as ‘going’ to get a helpful reminder on the day from Facebook.
Enter our Where’s Rudolph? competition and win
The popular competition returns this year with the chance to win a $500 shopping voucher, plus each other unique reindeer you find gives you one entry in our bonus prize draw.
To be in the draw, you’ll need to find Santa’s reindeer which are hiding around Camberwell, just in time for Christmas!
Look for Rudolph and all of Santa’s reindeer featured on posters on shop windows along Burke Rd and around Camberwell Junction.
Once you’ve found the reindeer, tell us the name of the shop and you can enter as many times as you like, but only each unique reindeer you find will count as an entry.
Why you should shop local this Christmas
With more than 400 businesses in the one-air precinct, Camberwell has you covered for all your Christmas wishes.
There’s no better way to support family-run and independent retailers, helping local shops to thrive when buying your Christmas gifts and food for the festive season.
Skip the traffic on your way to hectic shopping centres and the stress of late online orders by enjoying quality time just around the corner from where you live.
Make shopping enjoyable as you walk along the open street shops, have some lunch in between and browse your favourite retailers while getting to know new offerings the precinct has on offer.
Whether you’re looking for something from your favourite brand or you like the idea of finding a quirky gift from a uniquely Camberwell boutique, you’ll find it in the area.
Shopping local this Christmas also saves time and is a great way to get to know your community too.
