Millstream’s Black Friday a family-friendly Saturday

Santa and other guests will be in attendance as holiday toy drive kicks off

The businesses at the Millstream Village in Langford are banding  together to get back to what the holidays are really about – spending time with loved ones – for this weekend’s “Fantabulous” Black Weekend event. While a number of stores in the Village will have Black Friday savings,  the big event happens this  Saturday.

The Rotary Club of West Shore kicks off its holiday toy drive with a barbecue from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. Anyone bringing an unwrapped toy will receive a free hot dog and drink. The hot dogs are courtesy of Market on Millstream while hot chocolate is being donated by Serious Coffee.

The work of these elves won’t go unnoticed as the jolly man in the red suit will be there himself, double checking his naughty and nice lists and saying ‘hi’ to everyone he can.

Carollers from Belmont secondary will be on site to serenade guests with traditional holiday tunes from noon to 2 p.m. More fun activities taking place between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., include a town crier and consort wandering the village, taekwondo demonstrations, face painting, games, prizes and more.

Continuing with the holiday spirit, Milestones hosts Breakfast with Santa on Saturday Dec. 3 and 10. To learn more or to make a reservation, call 250-391-5016.
