This year’s Myer Christmas windows will have a clever and creative element. Engineering students from Deakin University have again partnered with Central Geelong Marketing and the City of Greater Geelong to add animatronic movement to the characters.

The theme is based on the classic children’s book, One Christmas Eve by Corinne Fenton and illustrated by Marjorie Crosby-Fairall. The Geelong windows are a retrospective of the 2016 Myer Melbourne windows and feature Bella – who on Christmas Eve finds herself on a magical adventure.

This year’s display will include all five windows in the One Christmas Eve story. The Myer Geelong Christmas Windows will be unveiled at 5.00pm on Saturday 10 November, just before the twilight Gala Parade. The windows are proudly presented by Central Geelong Marketing, Westfield Geelong, Myer, Deakin University and the City of Greater Geelong.
