Rumours that Santa Claus will be paying a flying visit to a picnic in Memorial Park this Sunday, 20th December from 4.00pm are swirling around Bridgetown.

Santa Claus would neither confirm nor deny the rumours that he’d be there with lollies for the kids, saying only “Yo ho ho! Merry Christmas everyone!” when asked to comment by the Bridgetown Star.

What is known is that buskers will be there to entertain and at this free gathering for families and that icecreams will be on sale for the young and not-so-young.

It promises to be a great way for families to get into the Christmas spirit, so bring a ball or a frisbee along and have some fun.
