Totara Estate wants to help Oamaru residents celebrate a traditional Victorian Christmas next weekend.
The Christmas celebration, which includes traditional Victorian games, crafts, stories and music, will be held next Sunday.
Totara Estate property manager Anne Sutherland said they decided to hold a celebration to show people the Victorian history of the place in a fun and active way.
“We just love to have people to come and visit us and we just thought it would be nice.”
She was excited to share the magic of the place, especially with children, she said.
“We love to have children to the estate.”
The staff would all be dressed up and visitors were encouraged to do the same if they wanted, Ms Sutherland said.
Totara Estate was also looking for any volunteers who wanted to help with events like this, working bees, tour groups and gardening, Ms Sutherland said.
The event would be held from 1-4pm on Sunday, December 8.
Santa would be arriving about 3.20pm to hand out gifts.
Tickets cost $10 for an adult and $5 for a child.
