Get Ready to Greet Santa and His Elves At The Gap
Be sure to look out for Santa on his sleigh with a band of happy helpers as they ride through the streets of The Gap in the lead up to Christmas.
Santa's sleigh will be travelling through and greeting the residents of The Gap to spread joy and local festive cheer. Santa won't be empty-handed either. He will be handing out lollies and stickers along his trail to all those who have been especially good throughout the year.
You can see Santa from Saturday, 7 December 2019 from 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm right through until Friday 13th December 2019 (weather pending).
Now in its 40th year, Santa's Sleigh Ride is a free community event hosted by Rotary Ashgrove/The Gap and involves about 15 volunteers each night. As the community unites for Christmas, some excited residents plan street parties to coincide with Santas' visit.
The event receives community and corporate support. Santa's sleigh vehicle is supplied by A.P. Eagers, Altus Traffic provide a safety vehicle, Subway The Gap feed Santa and his team, while local Rover crews and other supporters help Santa on his run. Santa and his elves are all volunteers.
