Breakfast with Santa is not in the cards for this year, but the folks at Esquimalt’s Country Grocer are still doing their part to raise funds for Help Fill a Dream.
On Saturday, Dec. 5 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., they host Santa’s Drive-thru Lunch, with princesses, superheroes and the grand old man himself on hand to visit with children and their families in a physically distanced, safe way.
Participants can visit with Santa and the gang from the comfort of their own vehicles, and pick up pre-ordered takeaway meals. Lunch choices include a hot dog, cheese dog or chili cheese dog, plus a bag of chips, a piece of fruit, a drink and for children, a gift bag.
The drive-thru takes place in the rear parking lot at Esquimalt Archie Browning Sports Centre, 1151 Esquimalt Rd. Meal tickets are $10 each, available for purchase online at helpfilladream.com.
