Little Melbourne Reviews
With two very excited girls, we were packed and ready to head to one of the most exciting events of the year. Its officially our families tradition to attend the David Jones Christmas Concert welcoming Santa as part of our own Launch in to the very silly but magical season of "Christmas".
With stars such as Spider-man, Ben10 and Dora in attendance, my daughters were hooked right from the beginning, but there was just one familiar face that not only children but adults couldn't wait to get a glimpse of and that was dear Mr Santa Clause, and boy what an entrance he made!! (once again needing the assistance from the crowd to get him there!)
The excitement and joy on the children's faces was a true sign the event was successful, even with the gentle drops of Melbourne Rain. The event is such a delight with a stage show and characters for all childrens tastes. It was a special moment to sit with our children and watch them be entertained and build to the highlight of Santa's arrival and the meaning of Christmas. Each Elf and fairy played their part and it was such a delight how accommodating they were at all of the little visitors questions and requests for photos.
Every detail was not left un-turned with David Jones staff and Event Team doing an incredible job executing such a professional and well run event. There were staff to greet us and to assist in directing traffic as to where to sit, along with other members ushering the characters making sure every child felt important and had their time to say hello. The work put into the Dora Ballerina Show and Ben 10 was also evident, and well received by all. It needs to be put onto any families calendar for next year, as it will surely meet all expectations, and so easy to travel to get to. Possibly it might become a family tradition of your own!
Special thanks to the Amad Family for Kid-testing this Christmas Experience for us.
The David Jones Christmas Concert may only happen once a year but there's so much more DJ's offers for Christmas.
