We have plenty planned for everyone, we're especially look forward to welcoming our VIP Special Guests who have travelled a long way to be with us.
“Families from Broughshane and across The Braid Valley are looking forward to coming to our village fair to meet Santa Claus with his 5 Super Hero helpers ... Superman, Spiderman, Batman, Wonderwoman and of course Snow White". Lexie added: "Everyone is welcome, Broughshane's great selection of independent shops as well as our Christmas food and craft stalls will all be offering gift choices for the whole family". "
Parents and younger children are especially encouraged to come along as Mrs. Claus will be telling children's stories, kids can decorate their own Christmas gingerbread men, visit Santa's Grotto and as a finale before the switch of the village Christmas lights.
Lexie added: “We are also going to attempt to successfully complete the 'Baby Shark Dance' en-masse.
“Santa Claus and Mid & East Antrim Borough Council's Deputy Mayor Cheryl Johnston will then switch-on our village Christmas lights at 6pm".
