Celebrate Santa’s arrival at Westfield Riccarton

The countdown is over. With help from his trusted elves, Santa has made his list and has checked it twice. Now it’s time to join us as we welcome Santa in style to Westfield Riccarton. There will be entertainment from various local performance groups, free face painting and balloon twisting. All your favourite Christmas characters will be here to help with the celebrations and at 12.00pm we will officially welcome Santa to Westfield Riccarton with a traditional Maori welcome as he enters across the air bridge before taking his place on his throne at 12.30pm

Plan your photo with family or friends to create a magical memory together this Christmas. Visiting Santa in his Christmas wonderland is not something the kids will soon forget!
