Merry, Merry Christmas Event! FREE & Family Friendly! Join us Saturday, December 14, 2019 at The Village at South County Commons for the happiest holiday event of the season! Starting at 8AM, Applebee’s will be hosting Breakfast with Santa…pancakes, music, Santa, caroling, prizes and MORE! Breakfast is $4pp (CASH ONLY) and the rest of the day is FREE! Don’t forget to bring along and new, unwrapped toy to donate to The Toys for Tots program!
Breakfast is “first come, first served”. Tickets and reservations are not available. We realize this is a popular event and we love how excited and enthusiastic you are to attend! Due to such a high interest, we have experienced long wait times for breakfast in the past. We are working with Applebee’s and thinking of ways to either start earlier, or extend the breakfast past 10AM. Please keep checking back here for updates as we move closer to the 14th.
After breakfast, Santa will be making his way down Main Street in the Commons by fire truck! Kids of all ages will enjoy checking out the fire engine after Santa arrives. Join us in the concert circle on Main Street for fire truck tours, a photo booth, corn hole, horse drawn hayrides and live music from the Olde English Carolers!
Many other free events will be taking place around the Commons until 12PM, including face painting, balloon twisting, arts and crafts and raffles! Don’t miss out on the HO HO HO Holiday FUN!!!

We love hosting low cost events for our community. In the spirit of the holiday, we don’t want to forget those less fortunate. Our main purpose of this event is to raise funds and donate gifts to the Toys for Tots program. Please bring a new, unwrapped toy or donation for Toys for Tots.
Updates will be posted on our Facebook event as we get closer to the 14th regarding entertainment and raffles. Please make sure to following along! If you have any questions, please send us a message on Facebook!
Lastly, we appreciate how much interest and energy the community brings to this event. We realize this is a large event and work all year on ideas to make sure everyone has a great time and wants to return again the next year. Please remember that even though we try to keep this event at a low or no cost to you, we also want to contribute to those who are not as fortunate during the holidays. It is inevitable that there will be long wait times for breakfast. We ask for your patience, understanding and positive holiday spirit and remember that this event’s purpose is to raise funds and provide gifts to those who may not be as fortunate.
