Santa returns to Sevenoaks Shopping Centre on Saturday

Santa Claus arrives at Sevenoaks Shopping Centre on Saturday, Nov. 21 at 11 a.m.

Santa and Clifford the Elf arrive by fire truck, escorted by the Abbotsford Fire Rescue Service at the Shoppers Drug Mart entrance.

Terry Fox elementary students will be first in line to see Santa as they parade him throughout the shopping centre for his first visit of the season.

Santa will be available for visits and photos until Dec. 24.

The shopping centre is also offering a special “My Time with Santa,” which provides children with challenging social, emotional or behavioural needs a more sedate, sensory-friendly visit with Santa featuring low lighting and quiet surroundings.

These visits are available Nov. 23 to 30 from 10:45 to 11 a.m.

Marketing director Tricia Dumouchel said the program was first offered in 2013, and attracted a dozen families, “many of whom had never had their photo taken with Santa.”

“We are pleased to see the program grow each year,” she said.

Each family received a free 5 X 7 photo. Families can register by calling customer service at 604-853-1339. Dumouchel said space is limited and she recommends that families book early.
