Santa pops in for pre-Christ­mas visit

Pilbara News - - Front Page -

Santa is do­ing the rounds in the Pil­bara to check on the re­gion’s kids one last time be­fore de­cid­ing who will go on his naughty and nice lists for Christ­mas this year.

Dozens of chil­dren lined Sharpe Av­enue in Kar­ratha on Fri­day night as the vol­un­teer fireys drove Santa down the main drag with sirens blaz­ing.

The Kar­ratha Pri­mary School choir sung Christ­mas carols for the crowd as Santa spent time get­ting to know the lo­cals.

To mark his ar­rival, the City of Kar­ratha’s Christ­mas light dis­play was turned on by Mayor Peter Long.

Chil­dren also got to climb in and

around the big red fire truck be­fore meet­ing the big red man him­self.

Santa still has plenty of stopovers to make in the Pil­bara be­fore head­ing back to the North Pole to load up his sleigh.

Pelago East’s mystery light­bringer’s ef­forts paid div­i­dends as well, with the apart­ment build­ing now adorned end-to-end with Christ­mas lights.
