SHOPPERS took advantage of Christmas bargains in a sidewalk sale in Hargreaves Mall.
Traders displayed clothing, shoes, beauty products and toys, at reduced prices, on tables and racks on Saturday.
Shirley Strelzak treated her grandchildren Emily, 6, and Lucy, 4, to a fun day out.
Ms Strelzak said the trio snapped up some bargain Christmas presents, played on Fun Loong and visited Santa.
"We (have had) a great day," she said.
My Hair Bendigo owner Maree Smith said the sidewalk sale and live entertainment in the mall had helped to attract a crowd.
"It's been really lovely," she said.
"The atmosphere (was) carnival-like.
"Everyone (was) in a really happy mood.
"The music in the mall also helped attract the (shoppers)."
Country music singer Kim Ritchie performed from 11am to 2pm.
