Breakfast With Santa & More at Sunnybrook

Blogger's Note: The following was provided by the non-profit SunnyBrook Ballroom Foundation.

Bring the family to breakfast with Santa at the Historic SunnyBrook Ballroom on  Nov. 29. Chef Doug Pickett is cooking up a great breakfast for the family. 

 “Ursala” SunnyBrook’s vintage theatre organ will ring out the sounds of Christmas. 

Mike Kropp and Makin’ Music will provide additional entertainment while the kids get their creative juices flowing by making a craft to take home.

And of course, a certain Jolly Old Elf will be on hand.

Bring the camera to take that one of a kind picture for keepsake.

Admission for the event, open from 9 a.m. to 12 noon, for ages 10 and under is $5.95; ages 11 and up $9.95

Breakfast with Santa is a part of SunnyBrook’s 2014 holiday celebration which includes:
  • Flamin’ Dick and the Hot Rods on Nov. 26;
  • SunnyBrook’s Holiday Ball with the Sounds of SunnyBrook Dance Band on Nov. 28;
  • Breakfast with Santa on Nov. 29; 
  • Twelve Twenty-Four and the music of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra on Dec. 19; 
  • And wraps up with New Year’s Eve with the Sounds of SunnyBrook and Emmy award nominee jazz vocalist Amanda Carr on New Year's Eve.
The Historic SunnyBrook Ballroom reopened in 2008 as an entertainment venue through the work of scores of community volunteers.

The facility’s casual fine dining restaurant and Chummy’s Lounge was reopened in 2011. The venue is owned and operated by the SunnyBrook Foundation.

During the heyday of big band music, the historic ballroom was a regular stop on the tours of all of the era’s big bands. Benny Goodman, Tommy and Jimmy Dorsey, Glenn Miller, Frank Sinatra, and Louis Armstrong are just a few of the names of nationally known performers who filled the room with the music of the era.

The venue has hosted political rallies, community meetings, weddings, wedding receptions, class and family reunions, high school proms, and other events.
