Santa spices feast

Santa pulls into Port Alice for his annual breakfast in the village.

PORT ALICE—Santa’s sleigh shared a room with sleight-of-hand last week as Port Alice hosted its annual Breakfast with Santa event at the Community Centre.

The day began with a pancake breakfast for children and their families, and included the Myster-O magic show of Kevin Ogren and a free skate at the adjacent arena.

The highlight, though, was the appearance of the Jolly Old Elf himself, who  sat in his sleigh with each child for a photo before sending each of them off with a bag of treats.
