Santa stopping in Penticton early this year for lunch and photos

Saint Nick will be at the Seniors Drop-In Centre on Nov. 23

Santa is coming to town a little early to stop for lunch in November.

Jolly Old Saint Nick will be at the Penticton Seniors Drop-In Centre on November 23 from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m., when he has to head back to the North Pole.

Lunch is served from 11:30 until 1 p.m., and there will be craft tables, a bouncy castle, a raffle draw, and a perfect opportunity to get a picture with Santa.

Tickets for the lunch are $7.50 each, and can be purchased at Sprott Shaw College in Penticton, with the proceeds going to support the Penticton Starfish Backpack program. Bring non-perishable food to donate and you’ll get an extra raffle ticket.
