Geelong City invites you to celebrate a spectacular night of Christmas activities to kick start the 2017 Christmas in Geelong program. Christmas in Geelong opening night just gets bigger and better each year.
Geelong’s stunning Floating Christmas Tree returns on Friday 10 November 2017 with a few new surprises when they launch the city’s biggest night of Christmas celebrations.
Families who mark the annual tradition of lighting the tree at the Waterfront will also be treated to the biggest Christmas entertainment line-up yet! It will feature an impressive line-up of entertainment from 7.00pm including the Mik Maks and hosted by Bay FM’s Hayden and Milly.
The Mik Maks
The Mik Maks are fresh from their sell out ‘Working on the Farm’ tour and can’t wait to entertain Geelong’s with their very own rocked up Christmas carols. This band of brothers will also be performing their original Christmas songs including What’s in the Box and Christmas Time. The Mik Maks will be performing two sets across the evening. Firstly, at 7pm and then a short set of special Christmas songs as the tree comes to life around 9pm. Geelong’s finest talent will be performing throughout the evening.
The lighting of the Floating Christmas Tree will occur at 9pm. Come and help us do the traditional count-down to light the tree!
Following this, head up to City Hall to see our festive Christmas projections which will commence at 9.30pm at City Hall. This year, the creative presentation has been developed by renowned local artist, Matt Bonner. It’s the perfect way to celebrate Christmas in Geelong Opening Night.
Again this year, one lucky child will have the chance to turn on Geelong’s Floating Christmas Tree as well. Enter the City’s Christmas colouring competition for your chance to win. (Open to children up to 13 years of age).
