ARDSLEY, N.Y. With his cookie-filled belly, fluffy red suit and wooly white beard, Santa Claus is coming to Greenburgh for "Breakfast with Santa."
For the first time since 2007, the Hartsdale Rotary Club and Greenburgh's Parks and Recreation department is inviting residents to a pancake breakfast in a fireplace-lit lounge on Saturday. Children will get their pictures taken on Santa's lap, which will be emailed to them the following week.
"We are really excited to bring back the program," said P.J. Murphy of the parks department. "It's a hectic time of year, but this is a nice event to take time out of the busy season for people to have breakfast with their neighbors."
Children will partake in craft-making, where they can build a snowman picture frame to house their picture with Santa Claus.
"Breakfast with Santa" is a good event for children to attend with their grandparents, said Murphy, as it allows extended family to enjoy a holiday event together.
The program will run from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. in the Multi-Purpose Room at Anthony F. Veteran Park on 11 Olympic Lane. Tickets cost $2 for children and $3 for adults. Proceeds will be donated to install a playground at the Greenburgh Nature Center.
