The countdown to Christmas is well and truly on in Caroline Springs, with Santa and his helpers sharing a special breakfast at CS Square this weekend.
With just weeks until the big day, the big man from the North Pole will also take up residence at the square every day until Christmas Eve for photos at his magical land of Christmas, located outside Target.
The breakfast on Saturday, December 7, will include an exciting live performance from Santa, Rudolph and the Christmas Fairy, while every child will receive a Santa hat and Muffin Break breakfast pack.
CS Square centre manager Rod Kennedy said it was a great time of year for the centre to give back to the community.
“Christmas is a wonderful time of the year and we wanted to make sure that all families and members of our community can experience the magic Christmas brings,” Mr Kennedy said.
“From having breakfast with Santa through to sensory photography sessions, we have tried to provide memorable experiences that all families can enjoy.
“We have also partnered with a number of charities and community groups in the area to help support local families doing it tough this Christmas, so they too can experience the magic of Christmas.”
The centre will also have pet photography and a sensitive Santa photography session for families, which will occur before the Centre’s general opening hours and will provide children personalised time with Santa in a calm environment.
The centre has has partnered with the Caroline Springs RSL and Rotary Club to host a charity gift wrapping station. Customers will be able to have their gifts wrapped by volunteers in exchange for a gold coin donation.
CS Square has also partnered with the Salvation Army to host a ‘Donation Tree’ where customers can donate purchased gifts to local families in need.
