Breakfast will be served buffet style from 8:00am to 10:00am in the Occident banquet room. The menu includes hot biscuits with creamy sausage gravy, cheesy scrambled eggs, country-style hash browns, assorted fruit, reindeer doughnuts, juice and milk all prepared by the Boot Hill Museum catering staff.

Santa Claus will be on hand to hear requests from all the children and pass out a special treat. Complimentary pictures will be taken of each child while visiting Santa by Josh Roesener Photography in the beautifully decorated Long Branch Saloon. Each child 12 and under will receive a free 4×6 photo with Santa, printed on site and ready to take home. Families and other individuals are invited to have their picture taken that will later be uploaded to the internet for your viewing, ordering and Christmas card making pleasure.
Children may enjoy storytelling in the church, make a craft to take home in the one room school house and have their face painted with Holiday designs.
