Celebrate the festive season in Elsternwick Village

Join our Family Fun Day

Christmas is one giant happy pantomime – and we’re dedicating an entire day to festive celebrations with our Family Fun Day.

Meet Santa and his friends as they roam the Elsternwick Village and spread the festive cheer. Say hello and even snap a selfie if you feel inclined.

You can also jump aboard an antique fire truck and enjoy a free ride down Glen Huntly Rd – simply head to Beavis St where it will depart.

The family-friendly day will also give you the chance to listen to your favourite festive tunes played by live musicians and get a free balloon creation from a balloon modeller.

For those who love face painting, why not get your face painted as your favourite festive character?

There will also be some silly acts by circus performers, a workshop at the arts and crafts table, and the chance to get a photo at the festive photo wall.

As you can see, there will be plenty of fun for everyone so we hope you can join us!

Event details:

Date: Saturday, December 17

The most enjoyable experiences are immersive, and it’s the sights and sounds of Christmas and Chanukah festivities make them a joyous and memorable experience.

At Elsternwick Village, we’re decking the halls – and streets and shops – with festive wreaths, garlands, and twinkling lights. There will be Christmas trees, huge toy soldiers, giant presents and massive menorah shining brightly upon all those who pass.
