Ready to roll: Santa’s vintage performance spreads

Flagstaff Team

From a distance… (from left) Malcolm, Lisette, Harvey and a high-fiving Michael Knight were among locals who met a mask-wearing Santa after his peninsula ‘roadie’.

Children and their families lined Devonport streets to catch a glimpse of Santa’s roadie as he travelled through town this month. Up to 150 queued to see him later at a market held at the Devonport ferry wharf. The roadie replaced Devonport’s annual Santa parade, which was ruled out due to Covid restrictions on large crowds gathering.
The socially distanced greetings at the wharf worked well, though some children seemed slightly bemused they couldn’t get close to the star attraction.

Spot the big fella… Vintage cars – one carrying Father Christmas – led a road trip through peninsula neighbourhoods, where children and their parents waved and shouted seasonal greetings
All geared up… Chris and Suad Dickinson, with Anya (10) and Roger (2), and dog Leo, wait for the road show to roll through Narrow Neck
VIP motorcade… Santa greets wellwishers on Victoria Rd
In the chair… Leila and Cassidy Fell enjoy their moment during Santa’s session at the ferry wharf
Masks and distancing… Jory and Ana Blair with children Olive and Rocco were among the families getting in the Christmas spirit, 2021-style.
