November 18 Arrival of Sinterklaas Losser

While the parcel boat from Spain is on its way to the Netherlands, Losser is preparing for the grand Sinterklaas arrival. It will happen on Saturday, November 18, and will be even more festive and exuberant than before. Santa and his helpers – there are about 50 of them this year – are really looking forward to it!

Be on time

Be on time, because dancing and singing together will make Santa and his helpers happy. DJ Piet will play fun Sinterklaas songs that everyone knows on Martinusplein from 1:30 PM. There are plenty of enthusiastic Petes who dance and sing along. And look around you carefully because you will probably see a number of Piets abseiling from the Oale Tower. Around 1:45 p.m., Santa will be welcomed with the Sinterklaas dance performed by the dancers from Dansstudio Juf on the large stage on the square. De Anklojers Music Chapel provides a pleasant tune. Not long afterwards, Praatpiet receives mayor Cia Kroon and children’s mayor Gijs Evers with his eleven children’s council members. Saint Nicholas then tours Losser with his entourage: through Sint Maartenstraat, past Lossers Hoes towards the Brink with stops at Eetcafé ‘t Raedthuys and Grand Café Smit.

Play paradise on the Raadhuisplein

And the Petes? They dance, do crazy things and have lots of gingerbread cookies and sweets for all the children. There is even a gluten helper for children with a gluten allergy. And if the little ones have had enough of all those sweets and gingerbread nuts, there is a nice play paradise on the Raadhuisplein. They can take a ride in an e-car or spin around on a merry-go-round. There is a very cool obstacle course for the older children.

Santa has moved

No longer in his bungalow, no, Santa will occupy two rooms this year. That is also allowed, because there are so many children in the municipality of Losser. He’s just busy with it. His office and bedroom are located in the Vicary Hall of Zorggroep Sint Maarten. He is regularly joined by the elderly residents of the care organization. Until his departure on December 6, all children and other interested parties are welcome there every day between 10 a.m. and 12 p.m. and between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m.

Start Sinterklaas voucher campaign

Santa Claus is back in the country and that means that everyone who does their shopping in the center of Losser can participate in the well-known Sinterklaas voucher campaign. Until December 9, you will receive coupons worth your purchase amount. You can redeem these coupons at Bruna, Wigger Mode or Primera Marcel. There is a draw every Saturday. What’s there to win? Gift vouchers with a value of 50% of your purchase amount. A very good reason to do your Sinterklaas and Christmas shopping at the local entrepreneur.
