Santa is coming to Pas Ka Poo Park on Friday and boys and girls of all ages will have a chance to have a visit with the jolly old elf.

 

News flash!

Santa and Mrs. Claus are coming down from the North Pole and plan to swing by Rimbey on Nov. 25.

The famous couple has plans to stop by Pas Ka Poo Park for a few hours to visit with both children and adults and check to see who is on Santa’s ‘nice’ list.

Community services director Cindy Bowie confirmed Santa’s attendance.

“They will be here from 3:30 to 6 p.m.” she said, “and then they have to leave.”

To celebrate Santa’s visit, hotdogs and hot chocolate will be served thanks to donations from Rimbey Co-op, Canalta and the UFA.

Parents are welcome to take pictures of their children when they sit on Santa’s knee to whisper their wish list in his ear and to receive their little candy bag.

There will also be a campfire and music. Stuart Lyster will provide sleigh rides and Keith Kendrew will bring a donkey to give rides to the children.

There is a rumour going around that the grinch is aware of Santa’s visit and plans to stop in to create some havoc and has plans to steal whatever presents he can get his greedy little hands on.

A draw box will be set up so the public can vote on their choice for best decorated building and a trophy will be presented later.

The public is also encouraged to bring an item for the food bank.
