Santa and Mrs. Claus will be stopping at the Heritage Museum Dec. 3.
This wonâ€™t just be a normal stop though, the Clauses will be having breakfast with the children of Big Spring, helping them decorate a gingerbread house and Christmas ornaments.
â€śThis went over really well last year and we figured we would bring it back this year and give more kids the opportunity to have breakfast with Santa and Mrs. Claus,â€ť said Nancy Raney, museum director.
The cost is $3 per child plus one canned good, which will benefit the First Baptist Church food pantry. There are 30-minute time slots from 8:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. that parents can sign their children up for.
â€śWe are expecting to have about 200 to 250 kids come through,â€ť Raney said. â€śWe are expecting to have a really good time.â€ť
To make reservations, call the museum at 267-8255 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. There is a new way to sign up this year as well, search Breakfast with Santa and Mrs. Claus at the Heritage Museum event on Facebook and sign up there.
After Breakfast with Santa is over, another tradition â€” older than 15 years â€” will be taking place once again, Parade Watch at the Heritage Museum.
â€śOnce again we will be hosting those who want to come and sit with us to watch the annual Christmas parade as it passes us on Scurry,â€ť Raney said.
During the parade watch, hot chocolate, popcorn, coffee and cookies will be served.
To find out more information about any of the activities going on at the museum, call 267-8255. Heritage Museum is located at 510 Scurry.
