 “Breakfast with Santa” Returns to the Cape May – Lewes Ferry
Festive Event to be held inside Cape May Terminal on December 16

Cape May, NJ -- Before loading his sleigh and starting his fast jaunt around the world, Santa has graciously agreed to stop at the Cape May Ferry terminal to visit some of his favorite Delaware Bay children for two special Christmas breakfasts on Saturday, December 16. The breakfast engagements are set for 9:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.

“For the past few years, Breakfast with Santa has been an extremely popular holiday event for us,” said Jennifer Shivers, assistant director of business operations for the Cape May- Lewes Ferry. “The children have 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 fruit juices, milk, sliced fruit display, vanilla yogurt with granola and fresh berries, chilled mixed fruit, scrambled eggs with assorted toppings, pancakes with maple syrup, mushroom and spinach strata, hickory smoked bacon, breakfast sausage, home-fried potatoes, breakfast pastries and fresh brewed coffee.

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.

The cost for “Breakfast with Santa” is $14 for children ages 3-12 while adults are $21. Children under the age of 3 are FREE. Due to limited capacity and anticipated popularity of the event, reservations are recommended. If space permits, walk-up customers will be accommodated. To reserve your tickets for “Breakfast with Santa,” please contact our Guest Services Department at 1-800-643-3779 (FERRY) from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM daily.
