The eighth annual Saanichton Community Christmas takes place next week.

On Saturday, Dec. 8 from  9 a.m. to 1 p.m. the village of Saanichton will be bustling with festive fun including a Pancake Breakfast with Santa at St. Mary’s Church, carriage rides, and new this year, live music and a market at the Station Building (behind Fresh Cup Roastery Cafe).

The annual event, put on by the Saanichton Village Association and the Peninsula Celebrations Society, engages everyone, young and old, and is a chance to bring the community together over free refreshments and activities explained SVA president, Jan Carroll.

“We’ve put in a lot of years creating a child friendly Christmas Tree Trail that gets people out of their cars for a walk around the village so they can discover local people and places they didn’t know existed,” said Carroll, adding that non-perishable food donations are collected during the event on behalf of the Sidney Lions food bank.
