When On Holiday Over Christmas29 November – 01 December
Newquay Festive FestivalWhat's it all about?
The 2013 Festive Festival will kick off on Friday 29th November with highlights including Santa and his real reindeer setting their sleigh co-ordinates for the Hotel Victoria. Santa and his incredible team of four–legged flyers will be waiting to meet all the children of the town and hear how good they’ve been this year and photo opportunities will abound.
Special late night shopping will be happening right across the town with many establishments throwing open their doors until 8:30pm and an exciting new undercover Food & Craft Market will be taking place in Fore Street.
On Friday, the popular Lantern Parade will see over 100 brilliant creations travelling from Cliff Road to Fore Street, starting at 7pm. The participating children and their families will be aurally escorted through the town by the Indian Queens Town Band. The finale of the Friday evening will be a Christmas coloured fireworks display across Newquay harbour.
The festive fun will rock on around the Christmas tree on Saturday 30th with a kids’ trail competition to help Santa find his reindeer across the town centre, free Christmas craft workshops in local business premises, street entertainment and the continuation of the Food & Craft Market in Fore Street.
And Santa will be ready to run a mile – in multiple – on Sunday 1st December with the new Cornwall Hospice Care ‘Santas on the Beach’ event. Men and women, boys and girls, young and old – everyone is welcome to join ‘Team Santa’ in this unique festive fundraiser for the Children’s Hospice South West. You can choose to run, jog or walk along the route in the only Santa Fun Run on sand. Those who sign-up receive a free Santa suit and are treated to a mince pie and hot drink afterwards so they can continue the merry making. Spaces for the run are limited, so advanced registration is recommended.
