Whether you have been naughty or nice in the past year, Santa Claus is coming to town!
On Dec. 7, 2019, Santa will be visiting St. Gregory’s School, 140 W. Main St., for its annual Pizza with Santa event from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
Pizza with Santa is an annual event sponsored by St. Gregory’s School to bring the local community and its families together in an evening of child-focused holiday fun. The event is open to all ages, from infants to seniors.
Tickets for the event will be sold at the door. Ticket prices are $5 for ages 2 years and older. Anyone under 2 years old is free.
Dinner will include pizza, fruit and drinks. Dessert will consist of holiday cookies.
Santa Claus will be at St. Greg’s for pictures during the event. All families who purchase tickets will receive a free photo with Santa. Tickets will include a checklist of different stations for the children to enjoy. There will be plenty of holiday fun for everyone. Several stations will be set up for kid- friendly crafts. Holiday face painting is also on the agenda. There will also be games for the children to play. As always, the sugar cookie decorating station will be one of the highlights for the evening.
Thanks to the generosity of Bob Martin, North East’s State Farm agent, the Erie Junior Philharmonic Orchestra will be providing beautiful Christmas music throughout the evening. The orchestra will also be providing an “Instrument Petting Zoo” for all the children. These “zoos” allow children to see, listen to, touch and play a variety of instruments that they may have an interest in working with in the future.
The families and staff at St. Gregory’s School hope to see you there and wish each of you a “Merry and Blessed Christmas.”
