During the month of July, the entire Sovereign Hill township will evoke a sense of old-world wonder. Visitors can take a stroll down Main Street as snow-flakes fall at regular intervals over the Victorian-style buildings, decorations fill the window displays, the smell of Christmas treats and spices fill the air, and traditional Christmas-themed pantomimes are performed. At night, as the light fades, Main Street will sparkle with an amazing light projection show with over 20 of Sovereign Hill’s buildings lit up with large-scale image projections and Christmas animations. This show, set to Christmas-themed music, is not to be missed with buildings lit up in impressive style, evoking the spirit and enchantment of Christmas.
