Santa hits streets with plenty of fun

Sunshine Coast Daily - Caloundra Weekly - - LOCAL LIFE -

A SPE­CIAL guest from the North Pole has con­firmed the rein­deer are bring­ing him to down­town Caloun­dra on Satur­day, De­cem­ber 15.

Sup­ported by Sun­shine Coast Coun­cil in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Caloun­dra Busi­ness Al­liance, the event will be the start of sea­son fes­tiv­i­ties.

Divi­sion 2 coun­cil­lor Tim Dwyer said there’s a new ad­di­tion this year fol­low­ing the re­cent com­ple­tion of the streetscap­e up­grade.

“Bul­cock St has a fresh new look, with new trees and shrubs, new foot­paths, a re­shaped road­way, ad­di­tional street fur­ni­ture, pub­lic art and will now also be the home of Santa’s workshop,” Mr Dwyer said.

“Bul­cock St will be trans­formed into a Christ­mas won­der­land, with rov­ing en­ter­tain­ers, live mu­sic, face paint­ing, sausage siz­zles, along with free Santa pho­tos.

“Christ­mas is a spe­cial time of year and we’re pleased we can share the joy with the lo­cal com­mu­nity.”

The Al­liance’s Kar­lie Brett said the cel­e­bra­tions would be a great way to of­fi­cially open the up­graded street.

“There are so many new ac­tiv­i­ties on the pro­gram this year, in­clud­ing the cutest pet photo and daily work­shops for the kids,” she said.

Cel­e­bra­tions start at 8.30am.
