BRISTOL - You better watch out, and you certainly better not pout because Santa Claus has penciled a stop at Bristol into his busy December calendar! The jolly old elf will make a grand entrance, arriving by fire truck at Holley Hall Saturday, Dec. 11 at 8:30 a.m. where he will join the townspeople in a pancake breakfast.
Breakfast with Santa is an annual event to benefit the Bristol Recreation Department's Scholarship Fund. Children and adults alike will have a jolly time eating pancakes and sausage and tapping their toes to the lively music of Ken Weston and The Ridge Runners . The Bristol Boy Scouts are providing a craft table, there will be caroling - and revelers can even take a horse and carriage ride around the park. And of course, the kids will have the opportunity to tell Santa what they would like to find under the tree on Christmas morning.
The cost of the breakfast is $5 for children 10 and under and $10 for those 11 years and beyond. Breakfast will be served from 8:30 - 10:30.
Bristol Recreation Department Director Darla Senecal said the scholarship fund benefits about 30 - 40 children and adults each year, enabling them to participate in the department's manyclasses and camps. "This is a perfect fundraiser," she said. For more information, call 453-5885.
