We don’t know how he does it, but Santa seemed to be everywhere on Saturday.
And while he’s known to be pretty speedy, he needed a hand to get from one end of the metro area to the other.
So the Mounties, dressed in their finest red serge, stepped in to give him a hand to get to the RCMP/Janeway Annual Children’s Christmas Party on time.
Before joining the party Santa visited children on various wards to make sure all could get to see the jolly old elf and whisper their Christmas wishes. Christmas carols were sung, with volunteer Clay Coombs playing guitar and helping Santa spread the cheer.
While children and their parents were waiting his arrival downstairs, there was a bundle of entertainment, hosted by VOCM’s Lacy O’Connell.
A magician, singers and dancers kept the party lively as Santa made his round of the wards and then took time to visit the crowd who had gathered downstairs.
