SANTA Claus will arrive in Coffs Harbour today as part of an action-packed program of kids entertainment for the city centre's annual Christmas Spectacular.

The event will have a market atmosphere with craft stalls, free face painting, a jumping castle and farm animals on display.

Popular children's entertainers The Toads will kick things off with their first performance in Coffs City Square at 10am and Deb Lee's Kids Biz show will keep the fun coming, with sets throughout the day.

Santa will arrive by Harley Davidson at 11am and again at 2pm to pose for photos with children in Coffs Central.

Nana Glen Public School Choir will perform carols from 12.30pm to be followed by a Christmas message from the Coffs Coast Ministers Association, and Harbour Church will perform carols at 1.35pm and 3pm.

Traders are encouraged to get into the Christmas spirit by offering a range of specials for the day.
