Tree Decorating Fiesta 1 December

The Mount Eden Village Business Association present:
TREE DECORATING FIESTA

Santa’s naughty helpers are calling for young assistants to decorate dozens of baby Christmas trees! Every tree completed gets a prize and can be carried home by the young helper!

Imaginations will be running wild on Saturday 1st December as the Village Green hosts the Tree Decorating Fiesta, celebrating the spirit of Christmas with an event assured to bring together the community of both young and old.

Santa’s helpers will provide materials for kids and parents to create their own decorations, crafting their own unique designs and, perhaps, their own spin on what Christmas for them is all about. The kids can choose their baby tree, then decorate it and collect a prize on completion - and then take their little Christmas tree home!

This seasonal treat, previously held in 2010, has returned by popular demand, and will once against see the Village Green on Essex Street blossoming with decorated Christmas trees – all created by you!

The whole green will be covered with the knee high festive trees with plenty of materials for all to share or swap amongst each other for their own personalized touch in Mt. Eden.

Nothing beats the smell of a real Christmas tree, and with such a worthy cause involved for the fiesta, there will be more than a few angels and stars hanging on the tree. The community and festive spirit not only will raise awareness for the Maxine van der Velden Memorial Charitable Trust, but all donations for the Christmas Trees will raise funds for this scholarship offered to talented young people all over the Auckland region.

TREE DECORATING FIESTA takes place
When: Saturday 1st December (12pm – 1pm)
Where: Village Green, Essex Street Reserve, Mt Eden
Donation: $10 per tree and materials provided
