The Arlington Education Foundation is thrilled to announce the upcoming sixth Annual Breakfast with Santa event, a delightful family-friendly affair that promises to usher in the holiday season with joy and merriment. Mark your calendars, as this highly anticipated event is set to take place at President’s Elementary School at 505 E 3rd St., in Arlington on Saturday December 2nd. The Breakfast with Santa has become a beloved tradition in the Arlington community, attracting families from all corners of the city. It offers an exciting opportunity for children and adults alike to experience the magic of the holiday season in a warm and festive environment.
Kids will delight in having their pictures taken with Santa, enjoy a delicious pancake breakfast, make holiday crafts, and sip delicious hot cocoa from the hot chocolate bar! Sponsors of this event include Kulits Orthodontics, S & S Roofing, and Grocery Outlet – Arlington. However, the highlight of the breakfast will undoubtedly be Santa Claus himself. There will be two seating times: 8:30 and 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, December 2 (also Hometown Holidays in Arlington!). Tickets are $15 each and can be purchased online at arlingtonedfoundation.org. Children 2 years of age and under are free. Children will have the chance to meet the jolly old man in red and share their holiday wishes in person.
The Annual Breakfast with Santa event coincides with this year’s annual Hometown Hoildays event, which kicks off on Saturday November 25th with the tree lighting ceremony at Legion Park at 5 p.m. Attendees can also expect Mrs. Claus and Olaf the snowman to be in attendance along with Saint Nick himself. A wide variety of entertainment will also be available including a Charm Walk, singing from the Arlington High School Choir, a screening of the movie “The Star” at the Olympic Theater, a craft bazaar at Arlington Lifeway and many more. The fun doesn’t stop there, more fun events will take place throughout the month of December and can be found on the Arlington Hometown Holidays website.

AEF was founded in 2002. It raises and disperses funds to promote excellence, enrich education and provide resources for students and future students.
