Visit Santa, try out the chili at Mill Bay Light Up

Mill Bay Centre is planning its annual Christmas Light Up and Chili Cook-off on Saturday, Nov. 26

Mill Bay Centre is planning its annual Christmas Light Up and Chili Cook-off on Saturday, Nov. 26 so mark the day and be sure to bring the entire family.

It all starts with the famous chili cook-off, where many of the super chili cooks at the businesses at the centre vie for the title of best chili cook. Tasting runs from 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.

There’s musical entertainment in the parking lot, too, arranged by Phil Newns, and hosted by Shelley Smiley from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m.

Santa Claus arrives at 5 p.m. and you can visit him at Bru-Go’s Coffee Shop. A portion of the proceeds from that event will go to the CMS Food Bank.

And, while you’re in a Mill Bay state of mind, breakfast with Santa will be held at Whiskey Point Grill on Sunday, Dec. 11 from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. Reserve by phoning 250-743-7277.

And, Mill Bay Centre is again stepping up with a special Ladies Night Thursday, Dec.1, from 6 to 8 p.m. A whole Santa sackful of businesses are laying on coffee, tea and snacks, in-store specials and prizes along with dad’s favourite: a free gift wrapping service.

Thrifty Foods, Pharmasave, Renu Laser & Skin, Bru-Go’s, Wear It’s At, Patryka Designs, Nicoletta’s, Third Addition, Edward Jones, Bare Essentials, Mill Bay Paint & Hardware, and Whiskey Point Grill are all participating.

Head to the craft fair to pick up some Christmas gifts

The Mill Bay Craft Fair is scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 26, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Mill Bay Community League Hall. Baking, sewing, crafts by local artisans and more are on the menu. Admission is free. The kitchen will be open so you can get homemade soup, bread, tea, coffee and snacks.
