Santa Claus arrived in Tofino on Saturday to visit the community’s kids and make a thorough list of what they’re wanting his elves to make them this Christmas.

The popular annual event is a fundraiser for the Tofino Recreation Commission’s Kids Access Fund and this year’s visit included a scrumptious breakfast, a highland dancing performance and a Purple Dragon Don Jitsu Ryu demonstration.
