This is our third year as media partner (John comes with me to take photos) and every time we come to cover the breakfast, it’s being held in a larger room at the convention centre. Children are playing and dancing along with the performers on stage, several breakfast stations are setup, and the line-up to see Santa moves swiftly as there’s so much more to see and do.
There was a photobooth this year along with a Nintendo display that had Mario out in the crowd and a craft corner from yoyomama. Children’s entertainers Bobs and LoLo took the stage after The Showstoppers and (what we call) a kiddie moshpit ensued.
Breakfast with Santa at Canada Place is held on a Saturday and Sunday morning in December each year and usually sells out weeks in advance. Put a note on your calendar for next year as it’s become a tradition for many families. They get a breakfast and a morning out with Santa while the Strathcona Community Centre’s program benefits from the proceeds.
