Christmas spirit will be alive and well in Cobram and Barooga this afternoon for the town’s ‘‘Crackin Christmas’’ promotion.
Organised through Cobram-Barooga Business and Tourism Development Inc, the initiative promotes local shopping opportunities and incorporates an afternoon of entertainment for residents of all ages.

President Wayne Gould said it was important local people supported local businesses.
‘‘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.
‘‘To encourage local spending, participating businesses will be given entry tickets to hand out to shoppers when they make a purchase at the participating local business.
‘‘To be included in the four voucher draws, shoppers will be required to fill in their details and put the ticket in the barrel located in the town centre near Cobram Travelworld.
‘‘Three draws will take place — one at 6
Mr Gould said a fourth voucher worth $400 will be drawn on December 22.
‘‘The aim of this final draw is to extend the duration of the promotion and encourage local Christmas spending for most of December,’’ he said.
‘‘Each draw prize will be an open shopping voucher to be spent in any of the participating businesses.’’
Mr Gould said there would be entertainment and carol singing and Santa would meet children on board a fire truck.
