Twas early on a Sunday morning in the little Village of Germantown that all the children woke up to the clatter of reindeer hooves as Santa and Mrs. Claus arrived for the Kiwanis Breakfast With Santa. It is a charming tradition here in Germantown, Wisconsin for families to come to the Kiwanis event to enjoy a wonderful All-You-Can-Eat pancake breakfast, and spend time with Santa and Mrs.Claus. Moms and Dads bring their cameras to capture those treasured photos as their children enjoy their magical moment with Santa. And as a special treat, Santa will bring his reindeer.
Breakfast With Santa, presented by the Germantown Kiwanis Club, is a chance for Germantown familes to get into the holiday spirit with an All-You-Can-Eat Pancake breakfast and all the trimmings, plus a photo session with Santa and Mrs. Claus. Once again this year, Santa will bring his reindeer. That’s right, real reindeer. There will be photo opportunities with the reindeer as well. The event will be held Sunday, December 18, 2016 from 8 AM until Noon at the Florian Park Conference Center, N111 W18611 Mequon Road in Germantown.
Breakfast With Santa tickets may be purchased for $12.00 apiece at the door. Ages 2-10 are $10.00, under 2 are free. Save $2.00 per ticket by buying them in advance from a Kiwanis member or by purchasing them at Aldo’s Pizza & Pub on Pilgrim Road, and the First Bank Financial Centre on Mequon Road.
Germantown Moms and Dads are encouraged to bring their cameras for Christmas photos with Santa, Mrs. Claus and their reindeer. Moms will enjoy the time off from kitchen duties that day, and Dads will be amazed at the All-You-Can-Eat pancakes, the best you’ve ever eaten. The full breakfast meal includes pancakes, eggs, sausages and all the fixings. The Kiwanis Pancake Breakfast has become a Germantown family tradition. There will be live music by area groups. Children may view Christmas movies in Santa’s Workshop.
With all of the stress of the holidays upon us, this is one event that is meant to take the pressure off Mom for a day and allow each family to get those treasured family photos for Christmas. It will be a memorable experience for every child in Germantown.
Asked if the event is a fund raiser for Kiwanis, Germantown Kiwanis President Dwayne Ketterer smiled and said, “We wouldn’t be doing it just to raise money. We plan the event hoping to break even on the cost.” He added, “This is an event put on for our community. We do it for the smiles it brings to the children … just to see the looks on their faces when they get to talk with Santa and Mrs. Claus. That’s priceless.”
