Lisle, Ill. (Oct. 8, 2013) – On his way from the North Pole, Santa Claus is stopping at The Morton Arboretum this winter! Join us to create lasting memories for your family this holiday season with a special breakfast and a visit from St. Nick himself.
The Arboretum’s annual Breakfast with Santa is set in the scenic Ginkgo Restaurant. Children will be able to meet with Santa and enjoy a special breakfast, while each child will get a gift from Santa Claus. “It’s fun to see the kids’ faces light up as they see Saint Nick come in from Meadow Lake,” says Jenelle Hardtke, special events manager. “Santa makes a grand entrance, then sits with each child as they tell him their Christmas wishes.”
Breakfast with Santa will be held from 9 to 11 a.m. on December 1, 7, 8, 14, 15, 21, 22 and 23. Tickets are $31 for member adults, $38 for nonmember adults, $27 for member child (3-12), or $32 for nonmember child. Children ages 2 and under are free. Prices include gratuity and taxes.
