Christmas in the city

Christmas projection MyHastings DEC 2023

The annual Christmas lights in Hastings city centre are up, and from December 15 to 25, the festive season will be in full swing with decorative displays, activities and more.

In Albert Square four tall pyramids will be installed, and pre-cut Christmas-themed stencils as well as paint will be available for people to add decorations to the structures.

There will also be a return of the Santa’s workshop-themed projected light display on the brick wall at the back of the square that will play in the evenings, with moving animations of the elves busy at work.

The folks at Hastings City Business Association are running a Santa’s Scavenger Hunt in the CBD until December 17 with a chance to win a wishlist to the value of $1,000! Discover more:

And from now until January 31 people can shop and win in Hastings. Spend $30 or more at any participating store in Hastings CBD, and you could be the lucky winner of a dream holiday for two to Bali.  For participating businesses and full information, visit
