Opening tomorrow, the Lake Hāwea Community Centre event will welcome people of all ages to "A Magical Tale", a walkable display that reimagines nursery rhymes and fairy tales, each with a Christmas twist.
Barbara Mackenzie and Elizabeth Horrell, the "head elves" behind the project, said they had spent over a week unpacking "boxes and boxes" of new and treasured items for the display, with a significant amount of volunteer help.
"The volunteers are fantastic," Mrs Horrell said.
"Without their help, we wouldn’t have gotten this far."
The reimagined tales featured in the display range from Humpty Dumpty and Old Mother Hubbard to Cinderella and even Elsa from Disney’s Frozen film series.
Santa Claus will also make a special appearance on weekends, taking residence at a new and improved grotto made especially for the occasion.
Mrs Horrell said there had already been an uptake in interest about this year’s display, and she hoped everyone felt welcome to partake in the spectacle.
"Just come and enjoy and hopefully be pleasantly surprised."
