Christmas Concert

Christmas is just around the corner!

After a bloody busy week today I finished early, wrapped it up at 6 pm-not that early actually, but compare to the past few days it's a bit relief, popped-up in the city to enjoy Christmas Concert at Martin Place.

Every year the City of Sydney presents a Christmas Concert right in the heart of the city at Martin Place (between Pitt and Castlereagh Streets), which for this year is on 27 November. The 20-metre high tree has been an icon for the festive season of this city, which twinkle day and night. The concert started at 6 PM and hundreds of children waiting patiently to see Santa and ‘little angels’ coming and giving away some chocolates and candies. There were some entertainments for children on the stage and Santa arriving in his sleigh to light up the giant Christmas tree and the fireworks. There were also some live entertainments at Hyde Park as a part of the Christmas on the Green project.
