Santa and his red-nosed colleague Rudolph have set out on their festive tour of the Felixstowe area.
He will be out in his sleigh every weekday from 6pm - 8.30pm until Wednesday, December 22.
This hotly-anticipated event is a combined effort from the Felixstowe Rotary Club, Save the Children International and the Felixstowe Lions Club, all dedicated to raising some Christmas spirit and funds for worthy causes both close to home and overseas.
Santa and Rudolph's journey began last week and they have already been busy spreading the festive goodwill around Walton, Grange Farm Avenue and Trimley St Martin. According to website manager of the Rotary Club, Paul Griffiths, they have enjoyed an enthusiastic welcome from residents.
The duo have also been keeping up with the latest technology.
“When Rudolph sets off at about 6 o’clock each evening, you can follow his journey,” says Paul. The Glympse app allows viewers to follow Santa’s progress in his sleigh. “I think kids and parents find it quite a thrill to track Santa,” he added.
If you’d like a longer visit with Santa, and the chance to take some photos, he will also be in Felixstowe over the next two weekends. You can find him on:
