SANTA WAVES his arms to greet the large crowd welcoming him after landing at Canadian Tire Nov. 27.

Santa drops in for a visit

Winter weather did not deter the gentleman from the North Pole.

TERRACE AND area may have experienced a harsh introduction to winter the last week but that did not stop Santa from making a visit via helicopter.

As if on order, the clouds lifted and the sun shone for Santa’s visit to the city on Sunday, Nov. 27.

Right on time at 1 pm, a helicopter carrying Santa gently touched down in the Canadian Tire parking lot thanks to Canadian Helicopters and Santa’s personal pilot, Tony Walker.

A crowd of children and parents clapped and cheered as Santa stepped out of the helicopter.

Santa quickly walked over to where the crowd waited, shaking hands and exchanging greetings of the season with young and old.
