Liberty Township’s Breakfast with Santa is changing locations to accommodate a larger crowd.
The popular gathering with Santa and Mrs. Claus will be held Dec. 1 at Liberty Heights Church. It will still be hosted by Eli’s Sports Bar and Grill.
“Last year the event was a great success so we selected a larger venue for 2012 so we can accommodate more families,’’ said Melanie Brokaw, assistant township administrator and Events Committee liaison.
“We are grateful to Eli’s who will continue to serve as the event host, providing a chef and donating the bacon.”
The breakfast and fundraiser for Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center’s Liberty Campus, runs from 8:30-10:30 a.m., at the church, 7904 Princeton Road.
Families can come anytime during those hours for a traditional all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast, including bacon, coffee, orange juice and milk.
“Liberty Heights Church is being a gracious partner in providing us the space to grow our event and give more children the chance to have breakfast with Santa Claus,’’ Brokaw said.
Families can bring a camera to take pictures of their children with Santa Claus. He will arrive at the event on the township’s original 1954 fire engine.
Entertainment will be provided by the Lakota West Jazz Ensemble, playing holiday music. Children can also complete a craft while they wait to have their picture taken.
Cost is $10 for adults and $5 for children, which includes a $2 donation for every adult ticket and $1 from every child’s ticket, to the Liberty Township campus of Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center.
Tickets can be purchased at the township administration building, 6400 Princeton Road or at the door.
