Breakfast With Santa
Grand Rivers Community Center
December 9, 2023

A “Breakfast with Santa” experience unlike any other. Santa knows the child’s name before they tell him, already knows a few things on the list of wants, and a little information about his visitors that only the REAL Santa would know. Each child receives personal time with Santa, receives a certificate of being on the “Nice List”, stocking with gifts & treats, story time, and a ride on the trackless train. Children & Adults provided a pancake breakfast. A limited number of tickets are available for this event so that each child gets ample time with Santa & Mrs. Claus. Cost $20 per child/$15 per adult.
