Santa Claus is coming to town

YES, Santa is coming to town and will be greeted by young and old in Casino’s CBD this evening.

The CBD will be transformed into a carnival atmosphere with markets, music, people and pooches taking to the streets to celebrate Christmas.

Kicking off at 5pm, the annual Richmond Valley Christmas Tree Lightup and Street Party offers enough entertainment to ensure many hours of fun rolling on into the night.

Hundreds of people are expected to turn up to enjoy the popular Pooches on Parade, as well as market stalls, amusements, and a great line up of entertainment, including a special performance by Casino High’s female Aboriginal dance group, followed by the lighting of the community Christmas tree.

A fantastic fireworks display will end the night.
