This weekend at Docklands: MRA Toy Run, Breakfast with Santa, James Squire Re-Opens & Concert Dining Offers

Get into the festive spirit this weekend at Docklands.

MRA Toy Run for the Salvation Army:
Sunday, 12th December
The Docklands community is really getting behind the Salvation Army this year. Mecca Bah will once again hold their annual Christmas Day Brunch for the Salvation Army on 25 Dec – with Melbourne’s own Lord Mayor helping out on the day. Looking at this weekend; Central Pier, NewQuay & Waterfront City will be swarming with 2 wheeled vehicles as Docklands hosts the 33rd Annual MRA (Vic) Toy Run for the Salvos. It’s the first time for the event at Docklands and it’s going to be big! The Motorcycle Riders Association of Victoria will collect donated toys from across Melbourne and converge on Docklands from 11:30am for a day of family friendly fun. Check out bikes, trikes & scooters on display, kids activities & face painting, choir performances & balloon artists. The Salvation Army gift collection trucks will be on hand to collect all donations while live bands & stunt shows will entertain the crowd. Discounted parking is available at Etihad Stadium.
