Santa and Mrs. Claus will be in town this weekend for a very special event hosted by the city of Stephenville.

“Pancakes with Santa” will take place from 8:30-10 a.m. Saturday at the Stephenville Senior Center.

The event is a first for the city and is organized by SPARD superintendent Mark Willingham.

“This will be similar to Disney’s character-type dining,” Willingham said. “Santa will interact with the kids and Mrs. Claus will read to them.”

The event is $15 per person (there is no charge for lap children) and will include pancakes, cinnamon rolls, fruit and Christmas cookies.

The event will boast a Texas-style Christmas theme that will also include a couple of longhorns outside to greet attendees.

Children will have the opportunity to take pictures with Santa and tell him what they want for Christmas.
