Pack clothes to suit the weather forecast

It’s really appreciated if you can bring a rubbish bag and help out by taking your recycling home ☺

Wet Weather Plan:
We will make every attempt to hold the event outside in The Square, however in the case of extreme inclement conditions (really bad weather) we will make the public announcement on Friday morning (6th December) in which case the event will be moved into Arena Manawatu - Fly Palmy Arena 2. Details will be announced at the time but the event will continue at the indoor location and will still include activities, markets and food vendors.

Christmas in The Square is proud to be supporting Starlight - A Manawatu-based charity helping mentally ill patients, children’s ward patients in hospital, and those living supported lives in the Community.
