SANTA’S WONGA WA­TER WAR

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

WONGA Beach firies stal­wart Ruth Ross doesn’t know how long the an­nual Santa visit has been go­ing, but she says it was a lo­cal tra­di­tion be­fore she got in­volved with the ru­ral fire brig­dade nine years ago.

The much loved an­nual Santa lolly drop and wa­ter fight took place on a sul­try af­ter­noon when it was not un­pleas­ant to re­ceive a good dous­ing cour­tesy of Santa and his crew. Lit­tle kids and plenty of adults said g’day to the man in red, traded liq­uid fire­power, and went away with arm­loads of lol­lies.
