(5/12/2018) Free Parking Santa is back!

Santa Claus and his helpers are back in Freo spreading Christmas cheer by roaming the streets and paying for shoppers’ parking.

The big guy will be visiting car parks and businesses in the city centre on Mondays through to Thursdays, handing out lollies to the kids and paying for parking, from now right up until Christmas Eve.

For tips on Santa’s whereabouts and updates on the latest sightings, check out the City of Fremantle Facebook page.

If you see Santa and his elf grab a selfie and use the hashtag #freeparkingsanta.
