Families got into the spirit of Christmas with the glittering spectacle that is Santa’s Arrival at Ocean Keys Shopping Centre, raising funds for the Perth Children’s Hospital Foundation.

The annual festive tradition saw a cast of local children in dazzling costumes parade through the centre alongside a troupe of musicians, stilt-walkers and Christmas elves, in a musical fanfare led by the jolly man in red.

Free family entertainment throughout the day including a bouncy castle, face-painting, fairy floss, Christmas crafts, roving entertainers, carollers and giveaways kept the crowds busy.

Families also sat for their Christmas portraits with Santa, with $1 from every photo package donated to the CREATE foundation. Santa photos continue until December 24.
