ROYAL OAK (WWJ) - Old St. Nick will take a breather from his busy holiday schedule to host a series of delicious buffet-style waffle breakfasts at the Detroit Zoo.
Breakfast with Santa will be held in the Zoo’s Wildlife Interpretive Gallery on three consecutive Saturdays, Dec. 3, Dec. 10 and Dec. 17, 8 a.m. to 10 a.m.
The jolly old elf himself will visit with guests, and every good little girl and boy will receive a holiday gift.
The family event will also feature costumed characters, arts and crafts and holiday movies in the Wildlife Interpretive Gallery Theater. Photos with Santa will be available at an additional cost.
The cost for breakfast with Santa, which includes zoo admission and parking, is $30 for adults and $25 for children ages 14 and younger. Tickets must be purchased for all children regardless of age as seating is limited. Advance reservations are necessary by calling 248-541-5717 (press 3).
