Excited children and their parents and grandparents formed a long line at 8 a.m. Dec. 1 for the 11th annual Breakfast with Santa event at the Oakhurst Community Center.
Pancakes were being plated as fast as Kiwanis Club members could cook them. After being served pancakes, families could pick a table in the main building where your kid's appetite for butter and syrup would surely be met.
Once children were done eating they had the opportunity to meet with Santa to personally tell him how good they have been all year and what toys are on their list. Once the sit down with the big man in the red velvet outfit was done, each child was allowed to pick out a stuffed toy from under the tree that were supplied by members of the Mountain Bear Fan Club. The children also received books provided by Sierra Tel.
Children were also invited to the arts and crafts station to make handcrafted Christmas decorations.
Mike Lindman, president of the Sierra Oakhurst Kiwanis Club, said about 700 children and adults attended the event.
"We were very happy with the break in the weather for this event," Lindman said. "Our goal was to raise money for the Children's Museum of the Sierra."
