Santa coming to town
If you’re not already in the Christmas spirit head to the village in Qualicum Beach this Saturday, December 7.
That’s when Christmas in the Village takes place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., with Santa Claus, stories, pony rides, cookie and cupcake decorating and more.
Begin your day at 9 a.m. at Bailey’s in the Village for breakfast with Santa. There are two sittings, the other at 10:30 a.m., and tickets for that can be purchased from Baileys by dropping in or calling 250-752-7584.
Free holiday stories for children 12 and under begin at 10 a.m. and then again at 10:30 a.m. at the Library.
All other activities are free including pony rides beside Dolly’s Home Hardware from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and photos with Santa at Pharmasave from 12:30 to 2 p.m.
Cookie decorating will take place at the Courtyard Cafe from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. and people can decorate cupcakes at Cafe Brie during the same hours.
At 2 p.m. families are invited to sing their hearts out at The Old School House Arts Centre, which is decorated with trees, wreaths and winter-themed art.
Many shops around town will be open during the event with specials and savings.
Lilo Kallai from Fresh N Fabulous Flowers said it’s a fun, family event for residents.
“We’re hosting this event to say a thank you to the community for supporting businesses in downtown Qualicum Beach throughout the year.”
