 “Breakfast with Santa” Returns to the Cape May – Lewes Ferry
Festive Events to be held inside Ferry Terminals in December

(Cape May, NJ) Before loading his sleigh and starting his fast jaunt around the world, Santa has graciously agreed to stop at each Ferry terminal to visit some of his favorite Delaware Bay children for a special Christmas breakfast on two consecutive December weekends! With two seatings on each day, the special “Breakfast with Santa” events are scheduled as follows:

Lewes Terminal                                           Cape May Terminal
Saturday, December 3                                Sunday, December 4
9:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.                            9:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.

Saturday, December 10                               Sunday, December 11
9:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.                             9:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.

“Last year, Breakfast with Santa was extremely popular,” said Jennifer Shivers, customer service manager at the Cape May- Lewes Ferry. “The children had some special one-on-one time with Santa and Mrs. Claus. And just like last year, Mrs. Claus will also be on hand to read Christmas stories to the children. The smiles on the children’s faces make this a can’t-miss event!”

A special buffet breakfast with a variety of tasty brunch treats will be prepared; including assorted juice, chilled mixed fruit, breakfast parfaits, scrambled eggs with assorted toppings, pancakes, mushroom and spinach strata, bacon, ham, home-fired potatoes, sausage, breakfast pastries, coffee, hot chocolate and candy canes.

Mrs. Claus will be reading a special book that she picked out herself for the occasions, Christmas Stories for Little Children at 10:00 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. This luxury edition combines two popular titles from the “Young Reading” series: Stories of Santa and Stories of Snowmen. It contains six original, festive stories guaranteed to excite, engage and entertain children. If desired, home copies of the books may be purchased and signed by both Mr. & Mrs. Claus. Books may be pre-purchased at time of the reservation for the child to keep at the event. There is a limited supply of first come-first served books and no guarantee of book availability on the day of the event.

For those who reserve by December 1, 2016, the cost for “Breakfast with Santa” is $11 for children ages 4-12 while adults are $15. After December 1, 2016, the cost is an additional $2 per guest. Children under the age of 4 are FREE. Due to limited capacity and anticipated popularity of the event, reservations are recommended. If space permits, walk-up customers will be accommodated.
