Big crowds ex­pected for Rein­deer Day

Hamilton Advertiser - - ALL ABOUT LANARKSHIRE -

Strathaven is look­ing for­ward to cel­e­brat­ing one of its big­gest events of the year, when the an­nual Rein­deer Day cel­e­bra­tion comes to town.

Thou­sands of peo­ple will line the streets to wel­come Santa, pulled by his team of guest rein­deer which are vis­it­ing from the Cairn­gorm Rein­deer Herd.

This year they will touch down at noon on Sun­day, De­cem­ber 9, with chil­dren in­vited to visit Santa’s Grotto in Al­i­son Green where they will have the op­por­tu­nity to get up close to the rein­deer.

Fa­ther Christ­mas will also travel through the streets of Strathaven with a won­der­ful rein­deer pa­rade round the Com­mon Green from 2pm.

And there will be an ar­ray of mar­ket stalls sell­ing Christ­mas treats as well as some fun rides for the kids.

The event – or­gan­ised by the team from Adam’s Com­mu­nity Trust with help from or­gan­i­sa­tions around the town – will get un­der­way at noon.

Folk can round off their Rein­deer Day fes­tiv­i­ties by sit­ting back and en­joy­ing some sea­sonal sounds from 7pm.

The Strathaven Choral So­ci­ety will hold their an­nual Christ­mas con­cert A Spirit of Christ­mas in Strathaven Scout and Guide Hall, on Kirk Street, with Coal­burn Sil­ver Brass Band.

Tick­ets are £10 and can be pur­chased from choir mem­bers or via www. strathaven­choral.com Doors 6.15pm.
