Get ready for some Christmas magic!

Ad-dictive Design & Promotion invites the community to bundle up, and come out for an evening of hot chocolate, balloon artistry, face-painting and photos with Santa on Nov. 16, from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Mrs. Claus will create twisted balloon sculptures from 6-8 p.m., an elf will provide the face-painting, and Santa will be there on his throne, posing against a Christmas backdrop, from 6:30-8 p.m. At 8 p.m., the Moving Art Choir will sing Christmas songs and lead the carolling.

There will be hot chocolate and apple cider, Sweet B’s cookies, and “cute giveaways,” thanks to support from local businesses, said Mike Gutta.

A first-time event, called Christmas Magic, “we don’t know how it’s going to turn out,” he said. “It’s just giving back to the community which has supported us.”

The event is also a fundraiser for the Hospital for Sick Children. Donations aren’t required, Gutta said, but anything the community would like to donate for SickKids will be appreciated.

The outdoor event will be held outside the Ad-dictive Design building, 56 Barrie St. in Bradford — “just to warm things up for the Santa Claus Parade the next night,” said Gutta.
