Christmas Nites: ‘Tis the season to be jolly


A spectacular Christmas Nites carnival is coming to Waurn Ponds.

The Events Company is bringing the best of the big shows to Waurn Ponds for this event.

Operating some of the largest portable amusement equipment in the Southern Hemisphere, the Woodall family is delighted to bring their exciting attractions to Geelong for the first time.

Alongside amusement rides, they create unique, interactive experiences for children, such as the Reindeer Training Academy, Unicorn Festival, The Big Build and The Enchanted Forest

“We look forward to bringing some very merry magic to Christmas Nites for engaging family fun this November”, said Emma Thorndyke The Events Company Creative Director.

“I grew up in the UK and we loved having a central hub for Christmas festivities with Christmas Grottos, markets and carnivals in our local towns. We wanted to bring some of that traditional European Christmas charm to the place we live, right here in Geelong.

“We don’t have the dark nights and cold weather (normally!) in Australia, but we do have the most amazing local suppliers who know how to put on fun festivals the Aussie way. We love our town and are lucky enough to work with some of the best in our region for this event including entertainment by the talented folk at Piano Bar, the Mik Maks and a bar by Barwon Heads favourite ‘ginger and blondie’.”

Join The Events Company, for three weekends of Christmas cheer with sleigh-fulls of fun for everyone!

The inaugural Christmas Nites carnival kicks off on Friday 22 November at 4pm and runs each weekend (Fri, Sat, Sun) for three weeks over 9 nights until Sunday 8 December.
