Santa is coming to Errol St as school breaks for the year. You won’t miss him because he will be arriving in a very special fire truck that will stay on the street for the little ones to explore and take photos in. There will be an elf face painter, balloon twister and special presents for all the kids to enjoy!

Come and say hello and take some photos with Santa and his entertaining Elf on Tuesday, December 20 from 4.30pm to 6.30pm outside The Centre on Errol St.

Twinkle Toes is the most wanted circus elf in town, with comedy routines in tinsel diabolo, bauble juggling, Christmas ballooning, elf magic and more … Elf Twinkle Toes has a fun repertoire that is sure to give a very Merry Christmas to one and all. 

Look out for the mischievous Elf and his Precinct Gift Card giveaways on Monday, December 19 4pm to 6pm outside Stranger Than Paradise and Thursday, December 23 from 5pm to 7pm on Errol St.
