Get into the Christ­mas spirit

Kalgoorlie Miner - - NEWS -

The fes­tive sea­son will be in full swing this week­end when the an­nual Esper­ance Com­mu­nity Christ­mas Pageant hits the streets to­mor­row.

Pageant go­ers will be treated to a spec­ta­cle this year as com­mu­nity groups, ser­vice clubs, schools and more make their way down Demp­ster and An­drew streets from 3.30pm on Sun­day.

Santa Claus is ex­pected to make an ap­pear­ance dur­ing the pa­rade and will be avail­able for pho­tos with chil­dren af­ter the pa­rade.

Shire of Esper­ance chief ex­ec­u­tive Matthew Scott said the an­nual pageant had a great turn out ev­ery year.

“Who doesn’t love a lit­tle Christ­mas pageant?” he said.

“It’s just a happy event for the com­mu­nity to come to­gether and en­joy the fes­tive sea­son,” he said.

“For our farm­ers who are busy har­vest­ing we hope it gives them a chance to have a break and cel­e­brate.”

The com­mu­nity can en­joy the Mu­seum Vil­lage Mar­kets which will run from 8.30am to 12.30pm, then again in the af­ter­noon from 4.30pm to 5.45pm.

Chil­dren who have not yet sent Santa their Christ­mas present wish lists can post a let­ter at Santa’s Post­box at the Mu­seum Vil­lage in the af­ter­noon.

Fol­low­ing the pageant the Lions Club of Esper­ance will host their Car­ols by Can­dle­light event at the Sound Shell from 6pm to 8pm.
