Moonee Valley will be lighting up this festive season with an exciting line-up of pop-up events, entertainment and programs on offer throughout the city in December.

Moonee Valley Mayor, Samantha Byrne said there is something for everyone and plenty of opportunities to explore your neighbourhood and take part in some fun Christmas activities.

“Throughout December there will be impressive projections and light shows, pop-up performances and Bites & Lights, a cheap eats guide to some delicious food offerings and deals from Moonee Valley cafes and restaurants,” Mayor Byrne said.

“Kids can also get into the spirit with our find the moon activity happening during Moonee Valley Lights.

“There are also some exciting ways to win this December including our selfie comp. Just snap a selfie at one of the light shows and upload it to Instagram using #christmasinmv for the chance to win a $50 gift card to use at a local Moonee Valley business area!”

After an unprecedented past two years of businesses being hit by the pandemic, Mayor Byrne says that this is the perfect time to support local businesses by eating and shopping local.

“You’ll find everything you need to decorate your tree, stuff those stockings and prepare for Christmas lunch right in your neighbourhood,” Mayor Byrne said.

“It’s a wonderful time of year to support our local businesses – so shop local this Christmas to strengthen your community and local traders.

“There’s so much to see and do in Moonee Valley and on behalf of Council, I wish you a safe and happy festive season.”
