It wasn’t difficult for families in the San Jacinto Valley to find Christmas spirit all day long Saturday, Dec. 11. Starting first thing in the morning, Valley-Wide Park and Recreation District hosted its annual Breakfast with Santa at the Regional Park Sport Center in San Jacinto. Two sessions, starting at 8 and 10 a.m., were offered to be able to provide enough social distancing for all attendees.

There were prizes as well, including two bikes and the grand prize, a $300 Disney gift car
