Sing your heart out at Christmas Karaoke, grab a picnic mat and enjoy Home Alone at our outdoor cinema, impress the whānau with your awesome ukulele skills, and get your competition face on for an epic game of Bounce Scape on the Auckland Live Digital Stage.
Plus, you can’t miss the annual family photo in front of the 10-metre-high Christmas Tree, have a game of giant chess or connect four, let your curiosity go wild with the imagination playground, unwind in a beanbag or deck chair, bop to the fresh beats from acclaimed DJ Gene Rivers, and enjoy some treats from the Container in the Square.
So, gather your friends and whānau and join us in Aotea Square for a merry old time!
