Santa Claus makes special stop at the Ramada for the 31st Annual Santa Face to Face

Santa made a stop in Regina Tuesday morning to speak with kids with disabilities.

SaskTel held its 31st annual Santa Face to Face event at the Ramada.

This event brings kids with various disabilities from schools in the Queen City together for some one on one time with Santa’s elves to sing Christmas carols and do holiday crafts.

Elf Takis Skagos said it really brings holiday cheer to all. “It’s good for an old guy like me to experience just the energy that these kids have. I think this just brightens their day and gives them a new experience and something to really enjoy and love.”

Elf Renee Young said the kids also get one on one time with Santa Claus himself, which is very important. “It’s a nice quiet room and is not in the middle of the mall, which is good as well, but this Santa already has that special knowledge about each child. If a specific child, or any of these children, aren’t able to speak with Santa, Santa already knows what’s on the kid’s list or what the child really likes.”

Skagos added that this is a great and important event. “The more kids that come out and have the opportunity to enjoy this, I think the better it would be for the schools, the programs that they have and for Santa Face to Face. We just love having the kids out and it’s an absolute blast.”

This year 20 kids were able to take part in the holiday fun.
