Deck the village for the Topp Twins’ visit

Greerton Village is gearing up for some Christmas cheer, markets, and a very special visit from two award-winning Kiwis.

Mainstreet manager Sally Benning says the village is excited to put on a show for the Topp Twins, who will be performing on December 7.

“The Topp Twins’ show is at Greerton Village School from 6pm,” says Sally, “but from noon we will be creating a bit of a party atmosphere to celebrate the Topp Twins coming, for retailers to have a Christmas sale and shoppers to get some Christmas bargains.

“We’re going to decorate the streets so it’ll look attractive for the retailers, the shoppers and the Topp Twins themselves!”

Sally says there will be street entertainment for the market from 12pm, featuring buskers, choirs and dancers, and they are still looking for more buskers. There will also be entertainers in the village square from 2pm onwards.

The family-friendly Topp Twins show will start at 6pm and there will be balloon artists, face painters and Santa handing out lollies for the kids.

There’ll also be food vendors, including candy floss and Mr Whippy, to bring Christmas cheer to the village.

“It’ll be a family show, running until around about 8.15pm, and tickets cost $5 for adults while kids under 12 can enjoy it for free,” says Sally.

“People can bring a picnic if they want, or there will be food and things to buy.”

The event is alcohol-free. For more information visit: www.facebook.com/greertonvillage
