So for anyone who has never experienced the Jingle Bus, here’s a bit about what it all involves.
The Jingle Bus is a wonderfully decorated Christmas bus that will collect you and your children from Dunoon stadium and take you on a 20 minute journey to the village of Blairmore. During the journey there will be Christmas songs played and elves on board with you all who will be singing along and entertaining the children (and grown ups!) When you reach Blairmore Hall you will go inside and await your visit to Santa. There will be tea, coffee and juice provided as well as an obligatory mince pie or piece of shortbread. There will be crafts and face painting for the children too. You will be called into your groups and taken across the road to Santas’ grotto…somewhere so beautiful and magical it has to be seen to be believed…where you will meet Santa and Mrs Claus, have a chat and sing a few songs together then the children will receive their personalised gifts. You will then walk through the cottage and out the back door where you will join the rest of the families back in the hall. The return journey to Dunoon will be just as jolly as your journey out.
The stadium itself will have a Christmas market, a childrens’ fairground ride, stalls with games and prizes to be won, a tombola and food and drink provided by a few of our local businesses.
All in all the whole experience cannot be compared to any other Santa visits you have been on before nor go to in the future…that’s how good it is!
