Santa set to make a splash at Ca­sua­r­ina pool

Sunday Territorian - - NEWS - PHILLIPPA BUTT

IT’S De­cem­ber and with that comes the an­nual Ca­sua­r­ina Pool Christ­mas Pool Party.

Run­ning for its sixth year, the party was can­celled, as Dar­win coun­cil voted to keep all Christ­mas cel­e­bra­tions in and around the CBD.

In or­der for the north­ern sub­urbs to still have an an­nual party, Richard­son Ward al­der­men Re­becca Want de Rowe, Jimmy Bouho­ris and George Lam­brini­dis put their hands into their own pock­ets to fund the Christ­mas do, which they’re hop­ing will draw up to 500 peo­ple.

“It’s go­ing to be a free com­mu­nity Christ­mas party, open to ev­ery­one,” Mr Bouho­ris said.

Nine-year-olds Mila Bouho­ris and Emily Penny said they were ex­cited.

“Even if it rains we’ll still be go­ing,” Mila said.

The party, com­plete with Santa, is from 10am to 2pm at the Ca­sua­r­ina Pool to­day.
