A number of Isle of Wight towns will welcome Santa Claus earlier than planned next month (December).
Father Christmas, accompanied with his sleigh, is visiting different towns, on different nights, starting with Newport Carnival on Saturday, December 3.
Isle of Wight Round Table, a social organisation, has helped put Saint Nick's sleigh together. Like previous years, it will be adorned with lights and Christmas music.
Cowes, Sandown, Ryde and Wootton are just some of his planned stop-off points.
A full list of venues, and dates, is as follows:
Santa's visits are, of course, in addition to his big delivery of presents on Christmas Eve!
