Berry Merry Christmas, Berry’s much loved annual event, will be held on Saturday 2nd December from 5pm. This year will mark the first year that the event has been held on a weekend, and its set to be bigger and better than ever.
The streets of Berry will come alive as The Santa Dash, followed by the Grand Santa Parade and the Charity Trolley Drive take over Queen Street from 5pm. After the parade there’s an evening of family friendly activities, including kids’ rides, a live Nativity scene, musicians, community stalls, and a real live Santa for the kids to visit and take selfies with. Shops, cafes and restaurants will stay also open late.
Berry Chamber President Anthony Houghton said “Berry Merry Christmas is getting bigger and bigger each year. It’s such a fun local celebration of Christmas, and we now have visitors who come from Sydney and Canberra every year to be part of it.”
He continued “The Santa Dash and Trolley Drive are the Berry Community’s way of giving back to the community and those who might need some help at Christmas time. Proceeds from the Santa Dash will go to the Berry Preschool; and all donated goods for the Trolley Drive go to the Shoalhaven Homeless Hub”.
All details of drop off points for donations to the Trolley Drive, registrations for the Santa Dash, and the program of events for the evenings are at the Berry Merry Christmas website: www.berrymerrychristmas.org.au and on the Berry Merry Christmas facebook page.
