Alicante Santa Claus house already a great success

AROUND 1,000 people attended the grand opening of the Santa Claus House in Alicante and there were so many people in the area that police were forced to close adjoining roads. 

On the opening day, there were up to three hours to wait in queues which led to a number of complaints from members of the public asking for the attraction to be opened earlier rather than the 12 noon start.

The Santa Claus House opens on December 15, 16 and 17 from 12 noon to 8pm; December 18 to 23 (inclusive) from 12 noon to 6pm and on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day from 10am to 2pm.

The main events in and around the Alicante City centre are:

Friday December 15:

7pm – Christmas concert by the Municipal Symphonic Band of Alicante in Las Cigarreras.

Friday December 15 to Sunday January 7:

Attractions in the Seneca Square from 10am to 2pm and from 4pm to 11pm, which go on until Midnight on Fridays, Saturdays and holidays.
