The Town of Eston has a busy day planned for this Saturday, as it is both Santa Claus Day and Minor Hockey Day in the west central community. All the festivities will be held at the AGT Community Centre, including sleigh rides and pictures with Santa Claus. Recreation Director Bret Howe explains what is all on tap for Saturday. 

“This Saturday we have our Minor Hockey Day, Santa Claus Day. We have basically all of our teams playing except for the Under 18s, who are out of town and then our Senior Ramblers play that night. So, we have games all day starting at 9:00 am, and we have pictures with Santa with local photographer of ours Helenka Bernard and that is from 1:30pm to 3:30 pm. And we have our market, where 20 local vendors actually in our market this year. We have sleigh rides with Clydesdale horses, we rent them out. We have Fancy Cake Bingo which is put on by the Eston Lions 95 Club and then we might be showing a movie in the bowling alley as well that day. So yeah, it's a pretty busy day happening.”
