For the children who believe in Santa, naughty or nice, he will be coming to Cape Girardeau for breakfast on Dec. 1 at the Osage Centre from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.  Breakfast with Santa is for children, ages 12 and under, accompanied by an adult.

Enjoy breakfast with the Jolly Ol’ Elf for $5 per child, $8 for two children, $11 for three children, $5 per adult in advance, or $8 per person on the day of registration. Pre-registration is highly suggested for this popular event, and is due by Nov. 30.

“Breakfast with Santa is an event that we program to raise money for our Parks and Recreation Foundation,” states Stacey Welter, Recreation Coordinator.  “This coming December will be our sixth year hosting the event. In 2011, 219 guests attended our Breakfast with Santa. We have grown every year in attendees, and we expect to do the same in 2012. This is one of my favorite events! Seeing the looks on the kid’s faces when they talk to Santa is priceless! We all look forward to it every year.”

Parents are allowed to bring their cameras to capture this magical moment.

All the proceeds of this event will go to the Parks Development Foundation to make sure everyone can enjoy our local parks and recreation events. For more information or to register, call the Parks and Recreation Department at 573-339-6340.
