SANTA Claus is coming, he’s not very far away.
With Christmas right around the corner, there will be lots of festive activities to do around Frankston in the weeks to come.
Frankston’s Magical Christmas festival has begun. One of the highlights of the calendar is the carols, which will take place on 18 December at the Frankston Football Oval.
The mayor Nathan Conroy encouraged residents to get out and embrace the Christmas spirit. “If you can hear those sleigh bells ringing, it means Santa Claus is coming to town and Frankston’s Magical Christmas is not too far away! Experience the magic and fun from 27 November to 24 December with something for everyone,” he said.
“Sing along to all of your favourite Christmas songs at the carols. Make sure you get in early to secure your free tickets to this event as this is one you don’t want to miss. If Christmas movies are more your style grab your picnic rug and popcorn for the pop up outdoor cinemas every Friday and Saturday night from Friday the 3rd to Friday 17 December, in various locations around Frankston City. With kids under 12 free and $5 for those over 12 redeemable onsite at our food vendors, this is the perfect night out for the whole family.”
Sources have told The Times that Santa Claus will be making appearances around Frankston, with a sausage sizzle at The Pines Forest Aquatic Centre expected to be one destination on his list. The Christmas pool party will take place on Friday 17 December from 4pm to 7pm.
The Frankston Arts Centre will also host two Christmas shows – the Very Merry Christmas Variety Special on 3 December, and a show led by Silvie Paladino and the Melbourne Opera Orchestra and Chorus on 4 December.
