Each year, just before Christmas, the local volunteer fire brigade challenges the kids to a water fight along our little town's streets. Kids spend hours filling water balloons, building barricades, putting on swimwear, and getting hosepipes ready to battle Santa and his firefighting friends.
Excitement was high as they turned down the road ...
And then the battle was on!
The kids didn't really stand a chance.
But part of the fun is getting soaking wet.
And Santa threw (waterproofed) bags of lollies out the truck on the way past ... an extra Christmas treat.
