Kids banter with Santa

The annual Coffs City Centre Christmas Spectacular featured a visit from the jolly man in red and his elf helper who received wish lists and handed out lollies to children.

People attending saw the lighting of the City Centre Christmas tree, enjoyed jumping castles, face painting, petting animals and Christmas carols played by musicians throughout the centre.

Let the festive month begin.
