The McLean Mill hosted its first-ever “Breakfast with Santa” on Sunday, Dec. 10.

Children and families travelled by train from the train station to the mill early in the morning and were guided to a full breakfast in the visitors centre, served up by volunteers from the Chamber of Commerce.

The event featured two special guests—the mayor of Port Alberni, and Santa Claus himself!

Each child received a gift, and visitors were also able to have their pictures taken with Santa.

McLean Mill will hold two more Breakfast with Santa events, on Saturday, Dec. 16 and Sunday, Dec. 17.
