Santa was seen driving an Echuca-Moama bus last week, no doubt testing out his navigation and reindeer-handling skills.MONIQUE PRESTON December 24, 2012 4:34am
With only one sleep until Christmas, Santa has been giving his reindeer a rest in readiness for a big night tonight.
Instead, he turned to a more conventional form of transport and was driving buses around Echuca last week.
The Riv caught up with Santa briefly last week as he stepped into the driver’s seat of one of Echuca-Moama Transit’s buses.
When asked why he was not driving his sleigh around Echuca, Santa replied his reindeer were having a rest, however he needed to get out and see a few kids before then so was using the bus.
Santa also told the Riv everything was ready for his big trip in his sleigh tonight, with the elves doing final preparations last week.
Anyone wanting their photo taken with the bus-driving Santa can do so if you can spot him on a local bus, but it will cost you a gold coin donation, with all money raised going to Melbourne’s Royal Children’s Hospital.
