Review of event
Sparse looking parking lot with tall, not so well decorated tree (certainly not a beautifully decorated one as promised), a teeny bouncy castle, the tree lighting and Santa's arrival delayed by an hour and a half. No where to sit for anyone so we had to stand for 2 hrs and 30 mins.
The pluses were, regardless of the above, the kids seemed to have fun. The lights when switched on were quite cute and Santa's arrival in a sleigh on the roof and being pulled around the car park by a Shetland pony was well received by the kids (and parents because it signalled going home time). The gifts for the kids were a nice touch except my daughter got a remote control car which probably ment a boy somewhere got a doll.
As we are so starved of such Xmas events like this I want to sound encouraging rather than overly critical and say that the event could have great potential if they got more vendors in, had some kids activities, seats, no delays, better choice of Christmas carols (maybe some live carol singers). Thank you to the organisers please pass by the TES winter wonderland bazaar for tips for next year.
