This Festive SeasonMonday, December 2, 2019

Mackay City Centre has you covered ‘This Festive Season’ with plenty to Explore, Create and Enjoy!

Explore
Explore our festive City Centre and discover new illuminated Christmas decorations along with the fabulous Christmas tree and garlands on the balcony of the Old Bank.  Also look for the six unique festive-themed window installations, dotted on Wood and Victoria streets in vacant shop fronts. Each window display has been created by local artists using upcycled items from traditional Christmas trees and baubles; to ladders, wedding dresses and books!  The displays are quirky and unusual and will give you lots of ideas on how you can design your very own creative decorations.
While you’re out and about, make sure you take a wander along Fifth  Lane and experience a new festive theme Augmented Reality experience, don’t forget to download the Zappar App.
