Listen out for the horns and bells in Kwinana on Christmas Day as the City’s famous lolly run hits the streets from 7.30am.

Santa and his helpers will make their way through Kwinana, delivering lollies until noon.

Mayor Carol Adams said the lolly run had become Kwinana’s most loved Christmas tradition, delivering Christmas treats to the young and young at heart.

“Every Christmas morning we see groups of volunteers ride their colourfully decorated sleighs, trucks and utes through the streets delivering lollies and festive cheer to children and families,” she said.

“It’s great to see the local Kwinana police getting involved again this year by riding along with a few of the sleighs.”

The lolly run was started in 1954 by resident Alf Lydon and community organisation Toc H.

Today the lolly run is co-ordinated by the Rotary Club of Kwinana, the City of Kwinana, and made possible by several groups of volunteers including the Mandogalup and Kwinana South bushfire brigades.

Dozens of volunteers also put their hands up each year to help organise and bag the lollies in preparation for the lolly run.
