Video: Santa ‘takes a break’ in Mid & East Antrim before his busy period!

‘Santa’ ditched the sleigh so he wouldn’t blow his cover to take a wee break in Mid & East Antrim ahead of hectic schedule.

SANTA has been exploring all the wonderful sights around Mid and East Antrim this festive season in a brand new video.

The film showcases the borough’s sights across Larne, Ballymena, Carrickfergus and Whitehead.

The big man even pops into some of the award winning eateries and shops to enjoy the perfect pit stop in amongst his Christmas shopping for Mrs Claus.

Santa sets off on his #MEAdventure in a vintage red beetle from Galgorm Resort and Spa before instagramming his journey along the way from The Braid in Ballymena, and even stops at a speciality barbers for a beard trim.

He takes in the sights along the Coast Road, Chaine Memorial Tower, Carrickfergus Castle and Carnfunnock Country Park as well as travelling home on the stunning steam train at Whitehead.

The video has reached over 60,000 people and is continuing to go global, just like Santa himself.

Mid and East Antrim Borough Council said they were really pleased to get time in Santa’s busy schedule to showcase the array of sights, sounds, tastes and tales there are to experience here and hope others are as inspired as the man in the red suit to share their very merry #MEAdventures online.
