Christmas in July at Luna Park
Time Out says
The most wonderful time of the year has come early at Luna Park
Christmas in Australia is strange. We’re expected to eat roast dinner and wear Santa suits, but the mercury is often well past 30 degrees. Which is why Luna Park is celebrating Christmas in July these school holidays.
From June 29 to July 14 (that is, the Victorian winter school holidays), the seaside amusement park will be celebrating Christmas six months early with festive lights, bunting, snow and the big, jolly man himself.
Visit the giant Christmas tree or say hello to Santa, who will be sitting in his merry sleigh every weekend and telling stories. Make sure to say hi to Santa’s elves too – if you’ve been good so far this year they’ll even give you a chocolate for your trouble. There will also be hourly snowfalls, so make sure you bring your woolies.
Santa will be hosting storytelling sessions every hour on the hour from noon to 3pm to recount tales of what he gets up to the rest of the year.
Soak up some snow in the Christmas domes or take littlies for a ride on the trackless Betty Choo Choo train. Christmas in July at Luna Park is on every day of the school holidays from 11am. Normal ticket prices apply.
