The Punanga Nui market was packed with people, young and old, who enjoyed the show and the wide variety of food offered by stallholders.
Christmas in the Market is a fundraising event for Rotaract Rarotonga’s projects and initiatives for 2018.
The event is designed to give back to the community in ways of getting everyone excited for the festive season, through local entertainment, a visit from Santa, and festive food.
It also provides families with an opportunity to gather to enjoy a show by local entertainers of all ages.
“Rotaract Rarotonga would like to thank everyone for their generous support in welcoming in the festive season,” Tuara-Strickland said.
“From the start of the event to its finish, it was obvious the children and families were enjoying themselves.
“We would like to thank all our performers for putting on a fantastic show throughout the night, and Santa for dropping in to spend time with the children of Rarotonga.
“We are thrilled with the outcome of the event and definitely grateful for all the support received.
“We’d like to wish everyone a merry Christmas and safe journey into the New Year.”
