To celebrate longer daylight hours and the approaching summer season, there are some exciting events planned for the Invercargill city centre.

From a Spooky Saturday for Halloween to a day out for gold-card members, the events will aim to cater to many Southlanders and help to bring some cheer to CBD businesses after a challenging year.

City Centre Coordinator Shru Shrivastava said she was looking forward to the events which would help to drive traffic and engagement to inner-city businesses and showcase progress on the city centre redevelopment.

“With construction starting on the inner-city, it is an exciting time to be in the city centre and I’m looking forward to coordinating these events which will allow everyone to be part of the rebuild excitement,” she said.

The first event, being held on the 31 October, is Spooky Saturday and will encourage Southland families to dress-up, trick and treat around the city centre and celebrate Halloween.

“With a spooky map to direct your trick or treating adventure, and the opportunity to collect treats from participating businesses – it’s set to be a wonderful day out in the CBD,” Shrivastava said.

Beginning at 10:00 am and running until 1:00 pm, prizegiving will take place at Wachner Place from 12:30pm with prizes from the Invercargill Public Library, Splash Palace, Jump n Fun, Clip n Climb, YMCA, Green Light Innovations and The Warehouse all up for grabs.

For gold-card and gold-card plus holders, a pre-Christmas shopping spree has been confirmed for the 10th and 11th of November.

For this ‘Good as Gold’ event, more than 35 retailers are providing exclusive discounts for Gold Card holders and Invercargill Central will be hosting two tours of the CBD redevelopment site for seniors to participate in.

Shrivastava said that to support the event some local cafes and restaurants would be providing special lunch menu options.

“As people start to think, prepare and shop for the upcoming festive season, we are looking forward to coordinating opportunities which will encourage people to support local, and add to the vibrancy being created in the city centre,” And the Christmas Market day in Esk Street On on Saturday 5th December 10am to 2pm.
