SOUTH WINDSOR, Conn. (WTNH) — Boys and girls in South Windsor enjoyed a big treat Sunday: pancakes and muffins with the Big Guy in Red!

The event was held at Maneeley’s Grand Ballroom.

Children had their pictures taken and faces painted as they experienced a whole lot of holiday joy.

“We have face painters here. the ride-on animals come every year. There’s Santa over in the corner taking pictures, crafts, coloring books on the tables, and plenty of stuff for the families. And a buffet to eat.

– Rebecca Dorsey, Event Planner, Maneeley’s Grand Ballroom

“Lunch with Santa” followed the “Breakfast with Santa.” All the toys and donations received at the event are going to homeless and battered women’s shelters in the area.
