Festive spirit will take over shopping networks in Cobram and Barooga next week when a ‘‘Crackin’ Christmas’’ promotion comes to town.

Hosted by Cobram-Barooga Business and Tourism Development Inc, the initiative aims to promote local shopping opportunities and provides entertainment and social outlets for residents.

Businesses will remain open until 8pm on Wednesday, December 21 and Bank St, Cobram will close to traffic between the post office and town clock.

President Wayne Gould said shoppers could be in the running for three $200 voucher draws every hour of Wednesday afternoon.

A fourth voucher of $400 will be drawn on December 22.

A barrel for entries will be outside Travelworld.

Mr Gould said entertainment and carol singing would be on hand and Santa would meet children on board a Cobram fire truck between 5pm and 6.30pm.

‘‘This year is the second ‘Crackin’ Christmas’ and the aim of the promotion is to encourage people to shop locally during December and to discourage retail leakage to other regions,’’ Mr Gould said.
