Kilmarnock Santa tour begins with bigger and louder sleigh hitting the streets

Santa hit the streets of Kilmarnock on Monday night as his annual tour of the town got underway.

Mr Claus and his elves have been in town spreading some festive cheer and raising funds for a good cause.

So far the merry crew have been at Southcraig and the surrounding area on Monday before the sleigh hit up Wardneuk and Onthank

And Santa has been cruising around the streets in style - in a bigger, brighter and louder sleigh.

His eight-date tour continues tonight in Kilmaurs Road and Long Park from 6pm and continues into next week.

This year, Santa and his elves have teamed up with The Night Before Christmas to ensure that kids in East Ayrshire get a present from Santa. Funds raised via collections on the night and a Just Giving page will go towards the worthy cause too.

Santa’s head elf said: “Christmas brings great cheer for many but it is a worrying time for those struggling with day-to-day cost of living.

“This year, we have teamed up with the night before Christmas campaign to make sure that children in East Ayrshire get a present from Santa.

"If you know of anyone who may need some support. Please submit the referral form to;

“The Kilmarnock Santa sleigh team wish you a very merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.”

Big kids can track Santa each night to see when he'll be in the area. Follow the Kilmarnock Santa Sleigh Facebook page to keep an eye on where he is.
