Those who missed the chance to see Santa at the Stroll last weekend can attend the annual Kalif Shrine Kids Christmas Party on Saturday, December 3 at the Kalif Shrine Temple.
The party is put on by the Kalif Klowns, and president Warren Pearson says the event has grown from a handful of kids when they started out to more than 1,000 showing up to see Santa in the past few years.
Santa will hand out Christmas stockings, there will be free hot dogs and pop, and the Kalif Klowns will tie balloons for kids while they wait in line. Pearson said that those looking to avoid the long lines should show up earlier to avoid the rush that comes as it gets closer to noon. The event lasts from 9 am to 2 pm Saturday in the Shrine Temple at 145 West Loucks.
