A brand new event for the town was announced on social media earlier this week, adding an event to the town during the festive season.
The Andover Winter Wonderland Day, happening on the 4th December, will run from 12:00 – 23:00, and consist of a variety of festive activities for everyone to enjoy.
One of the highlights of the day will be the Riverside Park as its transformed into a winter wonderland itself, allowing people to explore the park with photo opportunities, fake snow, activities and more, as well as a Christmas Market in the Andover High Street, allowing for the town to buy Christmas gifts from talented traders and enjoy the delicious food, drink & entertainment.
Dmitrijs Meiksans, the organiser of the Andover Winter Wonderland Day, said, “I am so pleased to be able to bring this event to fruition for the town to enjoy, and be able to boost morale for the town after a few dreadful years where the festival season might have not felt like the festive season at all!”
So far, 2,200 people have responded to the event on Facebook, and 52,000 people have been reached with the promotion on social media alone, with the organisers justifying these numbers as Andover clearly wanting more events for the town.
The business sponsors are to be announced in the lead up to the event, with Dmitrijs saying, “We are so amazed at the shear amount of support we have already received, especially in the number of stalls that have come forward to be a part of the day, and the sponsors that have already chipped in to make this event a reality.”
