Santa made a pit stop in Drumheller this weekend to enjoy a hearty breakfast at the Co-op Home Centre.

SantaSanta Claus.

His visit was part of Co-op's Kids' Club program which puts on four events a year -- an Easter event with an egg hunt, an end-of-school event and a Halloween pumpkin carving event.

"Today we have the Co-op Kids' Club Pancake Breakfast with Santa," said Sherri Armstrong, who works in Administration. "Santa took time out of his busy schedule to come visit us from the North Pole."

The event wasn't just for kids -- Armstrong was busy feeding parents as well.

"We had about 25 kids which is usually what our normal is -- 25 to 30 kids -- for our events. It's something a little different, and who doesn't like a meal you don't have to cook by yourself?"

In addition to free breakfast, kids could chat with Santa and enter a colouring page in a draw for a prize.

"If the kids bring their pages in to us coloured then we enter their name into a draw," explained Armstrong. "We like to call it a draw because we don't want to have to [try and] pick the best picture out there."

All of the food for the event was donated by the Drumheller Co-op.
