Taking the kids to see Santa at the mall is like navigating through a pack of wild animals, so you might as well move the party to a zoo. Enter the Palm Beach Zoo's "Breakfast With Santa" program. Nosh on a breakfast buffet while the kiddies meet St. Nick, ride a carousel, participate in crafts, and snag a gift from their new animal friends.
"Breakfast With Santa" is at 8:30 a.m. this Saturday and on December 22 as well as at 8:30 and 10 a.m. this Sunday and on December 23. The Palm Beach Zoo is located at 1301 Summit Blvd. in West Palm Beach. The cost is $32.95 for adults and $24.95 for kids ages 3 to 12 (zoo members pay $22.95 and $14.95, respectively).
