A brief from the Ponsonby Business Association to extend the Franklin Road Christmas Lights cheer to Ponsonby Rd, saw the creation of the I Love Ponsonby Xmas Fest.

With Crackerjack’s experience of how to drive foot traffic through fun and festive events, Ponsonby’s Western Park was turned into a Christmas Wonderland with Christmas-themed musical performances, roaming entertainers, carnival rides, food trucks and some of the most magical lighting this side of the North Pole!

For three nights, festival goers lost themselves in the magic of Christmas, took selfies with our special Christmas performers and strolled through the huge lit-up present cube.

5am starts, tricky logistics of over dimensional props and 24/7 security ensured a smile from even the biggest Christmas Grinch.

“Just wanted to thank you both again for the amazing job you did over the weekend!
It was such a beautiful, fun, festive and well organised event. You guys make it look so easy!
I’ve has only positive feedback from everyone which is always a good thing. So thank you so much Team Crackerjack!”
