Over 40 fashion and gift shops, 12 cafés, bars and restaurants and a host of unique winter attractions help create the Christmas shopping experience at the Bay Street Complex in St Julian’s.
Among the highlights are the Giant Snowplay Igloo on Level O, a Father Christmas photo area and the Qronfla Christmas shop. Children’s animation is a constant standard feature at Bay Street.
With all shops open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. from Monday to Sunday, there is simply no excuse about getting those essential gifts, and shoppers can also benefit from two hours free parking in the outdoor surface car park until 6 January, 2013.
The snow inside the Giant Snowplay Igloo comes from the same special effects company that produced snow in such films as Snow Business, Narnia, The Day After Tomorrow, Vertical Limits and Band of Brothers. The simulated snow is a water-based product and all the activity within the igloo is supervised by animators.
Special lighting compliments the igloo that is 7 m wide and 2.5 m high, and a host of Christmas characters to keep all the family occupied. Fifteen children can be allowed in at any one time and they will certainly be expected to make snowballs and even snowmen.
