The Picton Police will be escorting Santa around the above venues. Santa's helpers will be with him to give out lollies to the children. There will be a red letterbox for the children to post their wish list so Santa knows what the children would really like for Christmas.

The Belles will be singing Christmas Songs at the Library. The Blenheim District Pipe Band are still to be confirmed.
Instead of the best-decorated float this year we are encouraging all shop keepers in Picton to decorate their windows in a Christmas theme. To register please visit Harcourts Real Estate.
