This could of been me but I'm not complainig because The Gyle Shopping Centre have me as a spare incase a Santa gets sick or can't make it but I will attend it tommorow night.
Christmas just wouldn't be the same without Santa's grand arrival at Gyle. We're all very excited! Forth One's Yazz and Mark Martin will be broadcasting live, and if they've been very, very good, they may even get to ride in Santa's sleigh.
The fun all starts at 3pm with free face painting - oh, and look out for the big Christmas tree and elf, who will be roaming around.
There'll be some clowning around, keep an eye out for the large reindeer, and watch for the Ice Queen when she arrives a bit later.
Our Design-a-Light winners get the showbiz treatment when they arrive in style by limo at 4.30pm, just in time to switch on our fabulous Christmas lights at 4.45pm.
Enjoy the Silver Show at 5.30pm before the excitement really starts to build. Behind the scenes we'll be keeping a close eye on our special Santa Radarscope, watching Santa's progress to the Gyle. With the wind in the right direction, we expect Santa and his reindeer to be on final approach at around 5.45pm.
He'll start his parade outside just after six before stopping to have a chat with some of the boys and girls. After a quick mince pie, he'll head for the grand parade indoors at 6.40pm.
At seven o'clock Christmas officially starts when Santa opens his Gyle Grotto! Goodness - it's going to be a packed day with loads going on and lots of fun. Don't miss out - be sure to join us at The Gyle Shopping Centre this Friday.
See you then - ho ho ho!
