The Nicholas Conservatory is hoping to get Rockford families in the holiday spirit announcing the upcoming Breakfast With Santa.

The family-friendly event touts the grub first then a quick meeting with the Winter Fairy and a trip through the All Aglow exhibit.

Bring your Christmas wishlist along with your appetite, because the morning will wrap with a one-on-one with the big guy, Santa Claus.

Breakfast With Santa kicks off on Saturday, December 1 at 8 a.m. If you can't make it, there are various times and dates throughout the month (all on Saturday and Sunday) to give the whole family a chance to get to Nicholas Conservatory.

Like most things centered around Christmas and Santa, this too could be a hot ticket. Breakfast With Santa passes are expected to go fast. Statelinekids.com says "Register today, this program will fill quickly!"

Tickets are $16 for Rockford residents, $18 for non-residents. To reserve your spot, call 815-987-8858.
