Photos and Breakfast with Santa Claus
November 28, 2012Posted by pamela |
It goes without saying that every Holiday season Santa Claus is an extremely popular guy. He and his small army of little helpers will be making the rounds for photos, breakfast, and other holiday fun at various shopping centers and other locations in Marin County. (And of course you'll need to tell him what you want for Christmas, too!)
We make every effort to assure that all listings and hours are as accurate as possible, but occasionally Santa has to take a break to feed the reindeer or tidy up his beard, so make sure to call or check the venue's website before visiting.
