If you missed Santa on the 3rd, why not eat breakfast with him on the 7th? From 9am to 11:30am, children and adults can enjoy a large breakfast with the big guy himself. Breakfast will include scrambled eggs, cheesy potatoes, sausage, french toast sticks, toast, and a fruit cup. Children must be accompanied by a registered and paid parent.

After Santa leave for the North Pole, come visit Mrs. Claus on Saturday, December 8th. From 1pm to 4pm, Mrs. Claus will be at the museum in the Flat Rock Historical Village. She will be handing out gifts to each child who visits her.
Make sure to have your house decorated by December 12th for the Christmas Home and Business Decorating Contest. There is no form needed to enter, just decorate your home or business. The Beautification Commission will tour Flat Rock between 6pm and 11pm looking for winners of three different categories for residents and two categories for businesses. Winners will be notified and their addresses published. Prizes will be awarded at the December 16th City Council Meeting.
While Santa might take over most of the present giving, parents still need to buy theirs as well. On Friday, December 13th, from 4:30pm to 8:30pm, parents can drop their children off so that they can get their holiday shopping done. Children ages two to ten are welcome, for $20 the first child, and $5 each additional child. Children will be participating in games, making crafts, watching movies, and eating dinner.
