The initiative runs in parallel with the “Christmas in the Local Commerce” campaign designed to boost the city’s historical centre and support street commerce during the festive season.
Lagos’ Christmas Village returns to the city’s Praça do Infante between December 1 and 24.
The initiative aims to add to the city’s cultural entertainment offer and boost the historical centre during the festive season, “providing children and families, residents and visitors, with a range of attractions filled with the magic of Christmas”.
Those interested in participating as individual or collective exhibitors to sell Christmas-themed craft products, food, or drinks must register by the end of today, November 18, on the Municipality’s website.
In parallel, the city’s “Christmas in the Local Commerce” initiative will also return to help “boost the local commerce, turning street shopping even more appealing as each purchase in participating establishments will enable shoppers to take part in a prize draw for one of sixty €100 vouchers to be used in participating stores”, announced the Municipality.
The Christmas Village’s plentiful programme includes concerts, workshops, storytelling sessions, Santa’s Grotto, a craft market, an ice rink and ramp, an animated nativity scene, Christmas lights and plenty of entertainment for the little ones.
The Village is open from Monday to Thursday between 12h00 and 20h00, Fridays from 12h00 till 21h00, Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays from 10h00 till 21h00 and Christmas Eve between 10h00 and 17h00.
