News scoop: Santa’s advance schedule of early La Conner visits has been leaked to the Weekly News. Parents, are these on your calendar?

The La Conner Chamber of Commerce has negotiated Santa’s assistance for Thursday’s community tree lighting at Gilkey Square, Dec. 5. DJ Heidi will spin tunes starting at 5:30 p.m. Santa arrives at 6 p.m. to light the Christmas tree. Refreshments are courtesy of OPAL.

Saturday morning Santa will be posing for photos at Maple Hall when the La Conner Rotary holds its 15th annual Santa Breakfast, 8:30–11 a.m. Dec. 7. This is a dog friendly photo-op. Breakfast is $7 and $3 for children 10 and under.

There is no charge for photos, but donations will help support the La Conner Rotary Club’s literacy initiatives.

After a much needed hot chocolate and cookie break, Santa returns to Gilkey Square at 5 p.m., ahead of the annual lighted boat parade, which will start about 6 p.m. The La Conner Chamber will be Santa’s helper.

Next week Anna and Elsa, from the movie “Frozen,” will be posing and welcoming children at the community Christmas tree, 2:30-4 p.m., Dec. 14. Once again the La Conner Chamber is assisting.
