Once your tummy’s full, head over to our sponsors’ craft tables for fun holiday activities from Baby Boot Camp, Pearachute, and more! Even if you weren’t able to schedule a time slot with Santa, make sure to bring your camera! We’ll have several holiday scenes set up for you to take your own photos!
BREAKFAST WITH SANTA PHOTOS :: Once again, our favorite local photographer AKA Photography will be on hand to help us capture this fun morning!
To take a photo with Santa, each family will need to purchase a Santa Photo Package ($40) to ensure we don’t overbook! The Photos with Santa “Family Package” will include admission into the event for up to 2 adults & 2 children (ages 1+). For families who have more than 2 children or adults, additional tickets will need to be purchased per person ($5/each). This guarantees a Photo with Santa and a digital image which will be provided by a photographer. The photographers will either email your family an image OR provide a link to an album containing the Santa photos)!
Upon arrival at the event, each family will receive a card with their Santa Photo time slot. Families are welcome to enjoy the other event activities until their scheduled time. Please Note: If a family is late to their prearranged time, we will not be able to reschedule your time slot as Santa MUST leave at his designated time.
WHEN :: This event will happen TWICE! Yes, we are offering it at two separate times to accommodate your busy schedule and as many Dallas families as possible. Join us on Saturday, December 3rd during our 9:00-11:00am or 11:00am-1:00pm event. Both events will bewill simply allow us to accommodate as many families as possible. We do ask that if you are not scheduled during a specific time, you take advantage of the gardens and Butterfly House until your designated arrival or departure time.
WHERE:: Texas Discovery Gardens in Fair Park. Besides enjoying the yummy breakfast and having fun, your kiddos are invited to stay and enjoy the gardens and Butterfly House (included in event admission). You’ll want to make sure to stay around for the Noon Butterfly Release!

‘Tis the Season for Giving!
Like all of our events you know that we always try to choose a charity to highlight and encourage local Dallas families to teach their children the importance of giving back at a young age. For this event, we’ve decided to partner with Community Partners of Dallas, an organization that is dedicated to ensuring safety and restoring dignity and hope to abused and neglected children by providing resources and support to the caseworkers of Dallas County Child Protective Services.
This Christmas, they will be granting wishes for 5,500 of Dallas Count’s abused and neglected children. For some, this may be the first Christmas gift they’ve ever received. To help them in their efforts, our Breakfast with Santa event will be a Toy Drop station for their Toy Drive. A collection box will be placed near the Community Partners of Dallas table space at the event, and you’re encouraged to bring new, unused toys! Items needed most: Bikes, African American Dolls, Learning Toys for Toddlers, Bath and Body gift sets, ANYTHING from FROZEN, Light up toys, MP3 Players, LEGO Sets, Remote control cars, Toddler push toys, Small tablets, LeapFrog toys, Basketballs/footballs/soccer balls.
The Fine Print:: No tickets will be sold at the door, and you must be registered to attend (so we can plan effectively). When the tickets are sold out, we will be unable to release more (no exceptions). VIP Email Subscribers have access to a first batch of tickets; however, due to the limited amount of tickets, we’ll be releasing ALL tickets at 7pm CST on Tuesday, November 15.
Disclaimers :: ALL TICKET SALES ARE FINAL. NO REFUNDS. NO RAIN CHECKS. We will do our best to assist you in finding another mom to exchange, give or sell your ticket to if the need arises and/or if time allows. Additionally, everyone that purchases a ticket will be subscribed to our email list (if they have not been already) in order to provide the most timely and up to date event info. Photos will be taken at the event and of attendees for use on the blog and on social media.
