A Palm Cove and Cairns Charity Fundraising Event

The fun begins from Cairns city esplanade with a cavalcade of emergency vehicles and Santa Claus cruising along the Cairns esplanade spreading Christmas cheer for everyone and at the same time raising funds for the Cairns Youth Orchestra and The Humor Foundation (AKA The Clown Doctors).
