Attendees at Community Christmas can expect to see a few characters.

The village of Saanichton is gearing up to host the ninth annual Saanichton Community Christmas this weekend.

The event takes place tomorrow, Saturday, Dec. 14 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at various locations in Saanichton.

The Community Christmas celebrations include a Pancake Breakfast with Santa at St. Mary’s Church, carriage rides, live music, gingerbread decorating and a winter market.

The annual event, put on by the Saanichton Village Association, engages everyone, young and old, and is a chance to bring the community together over free refreshments and activities.
