Best Friends! Father Christmas and his friends at the Te Horo Christmas Market

With a record number of stalls and treasures for all ages, the Te Horo Christmas market was a great success for all.

The hall was filled with stalls and as many again were outside, selling wares from Christmas cakes, sweets, decorations and gifts for all ages, plants, clothing, jewellery, books and toys. The well-stocked café served homemade goodies to suit every palate as well as tea and “real” coffee feeding the hungry masses. Many people could be heard going over their Christmas gift list and who this or that would be appropriate for.

Father Christmas arrived on a quad bike, to be greeted by the children with cheers, very keen to see the yummies – lollipops and fresh fruit he had for them. 

Children were fascinated with the giant bubble strings and being able to make their own giant sized bubbles.

A brief shower of rain did send a few home, but most stayed and carried on visiting the stalls once the sun returned.
