Breakfast with Santa
Saturday, December 15th 9.00am – 11am
Grouse Mountain

Twenty odd years ago, my parents used to take my siblings and me to see Santa at our local Sports Club, where we would sit on his lap for ten seconds, get blinded by the flash of a disposable camera, get a pat on the head and be sent on our merry way. Over the years (due to many technological advances, I am assuming) Santa has more time on his hands and is looking forward to enjoying a nice relaxing morning with the children of Vancouver, where they will have the opportunity to have a special breakfast, enjoy some festive entertainment, face painting and spending some quality time with the jolly, bushy bearded heart-breaker himself.
