Here are some fun ways to experience the joy of Christmas in Elsternwick Village.

Meet Santa Claus

It’s his busiest time of year, but the big man himself would never miss his annual visit to meet the people of Elsternwick Village.

This year Santa, his elf, and a musical friend will be dropping by Elsternwick Village from 11am – 2pm on December 15, 16, 21, 22 and 23.

Be sure to pop down to the precinct on these days so you don’t miss the chance to secure your place on the Nice List and give Santa a few hints about what you’d like to see in your stocking this year.
