Breakfast with Santa

There are just 3 weekends left until jolly old St. Nicholas comes to town, but you can catch him early this year at several breakfasts and dinners planned around town. While the events at Conner Prairie sold out early, there are still a few other options in and around town.

The Crossbridge Community Church in Avon is hosting their “Mended Little Hearts of Indianapolis” Breakfast with Santa this Saturday from 9-11 a.m. featuring fun games, crafts, yummy breakfast and, of course… Santa! Tickets are $7 and proceeds from this event will help fund bravery bags that will be delivered to children at Riley Hospital for Children and Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital who are affected by congenital heart defects.

Find more information here.

Another Breakfast option this weekend is the “Breakfast with Santa in Whoville” at the Benjamin Harrison YMCA. Not only will there be a meal, but you will also have games provided by Dave & Busters, crafts, pictures with Santa and more for just $5!

California-born pop superstar Katy Perry will bring her Witness World Tour to Banker’s Life Fieldhouse this Saturday at 7:30 p.m. Tickets start at $56. If you’re not a big Katy Perry fan, the Pacers have home games at BLF this Friday (vs. Cleveland at 7 p.m.) and Sunday (vs. Denver at 5 p.m.) to get you inside and away from the cold, snowy weather.

Mrkt Ball 2017

The Mrkt Ball is a black-tie and/or costume gala (poodle skirts welcome) with a 1950’s rock-and-roll theme which benefits the City Market. Tickets are a bit steep at $125 a piece, but get you in the door and allow access to food, booze and all fair-like fun festivities. The event starts at the Historic Market House on Dec. 9 at 7 p.m.

Rain and storms put a damper on week 1 of the market, but cold and wintry weather will bring a real feel of the holidays to Hamilton County this weekend. Ice skating, traditional German food and gifts, entertainment and more will be available all weekend long.
