Claus fam­ily fes­tiv­i­ties

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

SANTA and Mrs Claus will be in town from the North Pole this week­end to find out who has been good lit­tle girls and boys.

While the elves are run­ning around mak­ing sure all the toys are ready and the sleigh is sparkling, Santa will be at the Port Dou­glas Shop­ping Vil­lage with his helpers on Satur­day and Sun­day.

On both days at 11am and 2pm Santa’s helpers will be per­form­ing a free show, full of dance and songs and will have lit­tle give­aways while Santa does a jig in sup­port.

How­ever, Santa will not be singing, he will be sav­ing his en­ergy for af­ter the show and in be­tween shows ready to have a chat with all the boys and girls and have his pic­ture taken for free.

There will also be face paint­ing and bal­loon mak­ing while Santa sneaks away for his next ap­pear­ance at the Wildlife Habi­tat to draw the win­ner of a huge fundrais­ing raf­fle.

Christ­mas is a time of giv­ing and the raf­fle is rais­ing money for the Port Dou­glas Neigh­bour­hood Cen­tre and what a great way to give, with a chance to win sun­set and Dain­tree cruises.

Santa will be at the Habi­tat from 9am to 3pm on Satur­day and chil­dren can get a free photo with Santa and his rep­til­ian friends be­fore the raf­fle is drawn by Santa’s merry hand at 3pm.

And with such a busy sched­ule, Mrs Claus will help out by vis­it­ing Moss­man, rid­ing in on horse­back out­side Moss­man Sec­ond­hand on Satur­day at 10am to hand out lots of presents.

There will be lots of yummy food to share in­clud­ing fairy bread, choco­late crack­les and ice cream and Mrs Claus will be cel­e­brat­ing Christ­mas with a theme of peace, love and har­mony for all.

To help spread the Christ­mas cheer in a peace­ful and fun way is Ray­mond James who will be re­leas­ing his new CD, A Pic­ture in the For­est, and buskers are wel­come to join in with the fes­tive fun.

Com­ing to town: Santa and Mrs Claus are head­ing to the re­gion over the next week
