Santa packs his sleigh with zinc cream for a tropical Christmas
CHRISTMAS at the Clink is back in business with more festive celebrations to enjoy on Saturday, December 11.
This end of year Christmas production will feature a play called ’A Tropical Christmas’ written by Laura Muranty, a trained drama teach from Melbourne and last year’s short story competition winner.
The play is about a journey of discovery as Santa sends his elves to see which little boys and girls have been good enough to get a present.
The play is set to show at 12pm and again at 2.30pm followed by photos with Santa Claus and his friendly helpers.
Organiser of the event and President of the Clink Claire Tierney said that everyone is really excited about the production this year.
“There really isn’t enough in this town for kids. People shouldn’t have to drive to Cairns to see Santa Claus. I have a kid myself and so we know how important it is for children to celebrate Christmas,” she said.
Mrs Tierney hopes that this event will become an annual celebration for people within the community.
“I am hoping it will annual event, there’s not a lot for children to do in this area and we are simply thing to provide something for them,” she said.
She has also recently spoken to Santa Claus who is very excited about seeing the children and is looking forward to a summer Christmas instead of a winter one.
Children will be able to greet Santa at 1pm and at 3.30pm to reveal their Christmas wish list and capture a photo.
An open bar will also be available with a delicious sausage sizzle, hot food, gifts and a range of festive games.
