PRIEST RIVER — Just a week before he starts his around-the-world sleigh ride, Santa Claus will be visiting VFW Post 2909 in Priest River, Idaho – and Mrs. Claus will be with him.
“This time of the year is very busy for everyone at the North Pole, but we’re grateful that the Clauses will be here for a couple hours on the morning of December 16,” said VFW Post Commander Joe English. “Of course, we’ve promised them breakfast and the chance to talk to local boys and girls.”
During his visit from 9-11 a.m., Santa Claus will greet children, while Mrs. Claus will present candy canes and other treats. Parents are welcome to take photographs.
The location is 113 Larch Street with plenty of parking in front and back of VFW Post 2909. Although not required, children and their parents are welcome to purchase VFW Post 2909’s All-You-Can-Eat Breakfast. The cost is $6 for adults and $3 for children under 12. All proceeds support local school scholarship programs and veterans support.
