We were lucky to spend a couple of days at Sovereign Hill last week. I can’t believe we had never been there before! Well Luke had been with school, but we had never taken the kids. To say they had an awesome time is an understatement. And not just because of the boiled lollies and pies at the Hope bakery (seriously, best pies ever). I think this picture of Harper’s face pretty much says it all.
One of the kid’s favorite parts of the whole experience was seeing costumed characters on Main street. They loved being taken back in time and it really gave their knowledge of the gold rush days some grounding. Not to mention busting some moves to the characters who were playing banjo.
This school holidays Sovereign Hill is stepping it up a notch for a Christmas In July spectacular. Main street will be transformed with Victorian style Christmas decorations, carolers and even falling snowflakes. There will be a full program of special Christmas themed activities during the day including pantomimes and snow play. Then at night 12 of the buildings will be lit up with the glittering Christmas Wonder Lights. The grand scale images and bright lights are from the team who bring White Night to Melbourne each year so it should be spectacular!
The Christmas in July at Sovereign Hill featuring the Christmas Wonder Lights is on this holidays from June 28 until the 13th of July. You can check out the website to get more information HERE.
