David Jones is getting behind Christmas in Wellington from November 25 to December 24, kicking off the events this Saturday with a Christmas parade in association with the Wellington City Council.
Those wanting a photo with Santa Claus can begin getting them in-store, though the first one is reserved for Mayor Justin Lester and his family right after the parade. Booking is a must, either online or in-store. At the time of writing, there are a lot of slots beginning on Monday, November 27.
There are further events on Sunday, November 26, from 12 to 6 p.m.
Face-painting takes place over the next three weekends (till December 10) from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., and a colouring-in competition is being held weekends from December 9 to 24. Kids can win a Maxi Micro Deluxe scooter, valued at NZ$229.
