Listen out for the horns and bells this Christmas Day in Kwinana, as the famous Lolly Run hits the streets again from 7.30am.
Santa and his helpers will be delivering lollies as the Lolly Run volunteers make their way through every neighbou rhood in Kwinana.
Mayor Carol Adams, a Lolly Run volunteer herself, said the Lolly Run has become Kwinana's most loved Christmas tradition.
"The Lolly Run is a unique and proud tradition in Kwinana," Mayor Adams said.
"Every Christmas morning we see groups of volunteers ride their colourfully decorated sleighs, trucks and utes through the streets - delivering lollies and festive cheer to children and families," she said.
The first Kwinana Lolly Run took place in 1954, run by resident Alf Lydon and a community organisation called Toc H. Today the Lolly Run is coordinated by the Rotary Club of Kwinana, the City of Kwinana, and made possible thanks to several groups of volunteers including the Mandogalup and Kwinana South Bushfire Brigades.
Dozens of volunteers also put their hands up each year to help organise and bag the lollies in preparation for the Lolly Run.
"It's great to see the local Kwinana police getting involved again this year by riding along with a few of the sleighs," said Mayor Adams.
