THE Christmas festivities in Hilltown officially get underway this Friday.
Get in the festive mood to the sound of Mini Macs Roadshow, from 6.30pm as you wait for Santa and his special guests to arrive.
Tooter Murnin will give the orders, assisted by Josh Kelly and Madeline Brown who will help Santa switch on the Christmas lights in the Square at 7.15pm.
There will be some other ‘surprise guests’ mingling through the crowd you may like to take a selfie with!
Santa wants to see children in costume this year, so be sure to wear your best dress-up gear.
Follow him afterwards to the Youth Club for hot chocolate, mince pies and shortbread.
Visit Santa in his magical grotto and receive a token present. Santa has ensured the queue to his fabulous grotto is extra speedy this year!
It costs £2 per child with all proceeds going to the Clonduff GAA club.
Hilltown Community Association and Clonduff GAA Club invite everyone to come out and get into the festive spirit. Bring all the family!
