The year has flown by and the silly season is well underway, which means Christmas is all around us. Federation Square has released their Free Christmas Program Guide, celebrating events for all ages. From now under after Christmas a range of events including entertainment, music and workshops will be taking place throughout the Melbourne CBD.
Below are our top picks!
1. LEGO Christmas Tree
The largest LEGO Christmas Tree in the southern hemisphere has just gone up at Fed Square. With more than half a million bricks, be sure to check out the tree once the sun goes down! The tree will be the backdrop to a festive light show dancing to your favourite Christmas carols.
2. Outdoor Cinema
The nice weather is finally here, outdoor cinemas are popping up all over the city. Bring your lawn chairs down to Fed Square and enjoy Christmas flicks from 6pm-8pm every Wednesday with the final show on the 23rd of December.
