Zionsville’s Tri Kappa chapter will host its annual Santa Breakfast Dec. 1 in the Village, beginning at 9 a.m.
Rae Hostetler, a member of Tri Kappa since 2012, first attended the Santa Breakfast as a guest when it was hosted at a local elementary school several years ago. She said she has fond memories.
“Guests get a special VIP pass when Santa gets to his house at East Cedar Street and South Main Street right after breakfast,” Hostetler said.
Guests will be sent a customized event schedule outlining their upcoming holiday experience. They will get to meet Santa, say hello to Mrs. Claus and encounter characters from “The Nutcracker.”
Hostetler said the annual holiday breakfast fundraiser is a great way for families to experience the Village and make holiday season memories.
“The merchants and restaurant owners who participate are very generous,” Hostetler said. “Restaurant staff members volunteer to open early, prepare the breakfast of their choice and serve it.”
Restaurant partners for the Santa Breakfast include Cobblestone, Greek’s Pizzeria, Auberge, Serenity and Rush on Main.
Merchants also have activities for kids. Crafts will take place at My Sugar Pie and CV Art and Frame. Games and a family photo booth will be set up at zWORKS, and story time for kids will be hosted by Goodman Jewelers and Black Dog Books. Southern Fancy will provide hot chocolate.
The meal will begin at 9 a.m. Other events will follow at 10 a.m. in the Village. Admission is $15 per person. Tickets can be purchased at zionsvilletrikappa.org.
All proceeds are returned to the community through grants to Boone County nonprofits and scholarships for Zionsville students.
