Father Christmas is heading to town and one of his first stops will be at Martha Trust's Christmas Fayre in Sandwich today.
The festive celebration will be held upstairs in the Guildhall from 10am until 4pm.
Entry is free and people of all ages are invited to get into the spirit.
They’ll be a vast array of seasonal treats, gift ideas, arts and crafts plus the chance to meet the man himself.
Drink Outside the Box will be serving Christmas drinks with 20% of sales going towards the charity, while The Rock Choir will entertain visitors from noon until 1pm.
There's also a colouring competition for primary school aged children, which will be judged by the town's mayor Cllr Jeff Franklin.
The event has been sponsored by Discovery Park, Sainsburys and Barclays.
A grotto is also the offering at St Andrew's Christmas Fair in Deal today.
The event will be held inside the church in West Street from 10am until 1pm.
There will also be a raffle, bottle stall, children's corner, gifts, cakes and music from the Deal Hoodeners.
