Santa spreads joy at Balwyn North shopping strip with sweet surprises

In the spirit of spreading holiday cheer, Santa Claus will be making special appearances at the Balwyn North shopping strip on December 9 and 16 from 9am-12pm, delighting shoppers and children alike with the sweet taste of the season.

Santa’s visits are part of a festive initiative aimed at bringing joy to the community during the holiday season. The jolly man in red will be walking along the shopping strip, ready to greet families, pose for photos, and most importantly, hand out lollies to the little ones.
