Adding to the list of jolly Christmas activities this season, Christmas at the Classic Center is featuring Breakfast with Santa, where you and your family can enjoy a delicious breakfast all while hanging out and getting your picture taken with the big guy (each participant gets a complimentary photo with Santa to take home!).  Taking place on Saturday, December 13 OR Saturday, December 20, Breakfast with Santa is an opportunity to create a special Christmas memory with the child in your life!

As a special opportunity for our participants, ESP will be hosting a day made for our families. There will be ice-skating at 11:45 and lunch at 1pm.

Making all of this Christmas cheer possible are our volunteers! We’ll have opportunities throughout the festival to volunteer from managing the trees and helping out Santa to sharing the ESP story.

Proceeds for both The Festival of Trees and Breakfast with Santa will benefit ESP so make sure to buy your tickets today!  More information about the Festival of Trees, volunteering, and Breakfast with Santa can be found here: https://extraspecialpeople.com/festival-of-trees/.
