To celebrate the arrival of Jolly Old St. Nick, Outlets at Castle Rock hosts a special family-friendly celebration on Saturday, Nov. 17 from 8:30-10:30 a.m. dubbed ‘Santa’s Big Day.’ The morning begins with a pancake breakfast with the Big Guy Himself (Santa), by Flippin’ Flapjacks, in the Food Court. All donations benefit Denver Rescue Mission.
The event will also include children’s Christmas coloring activities, sleigh rides, and even real reindeer!
Breakfast will be served from 8:30-10:00 a.m. with Santa, Sleigh Rides and real reindeer will be available from 10-11:00 a.m., and at 10:30 a.m. the Elves will kick the annual off Run Run Rudolph Scavenger Hunt.
Breakfast is $5/person, a donation directly to Denver Rescue Mission. Or, instead of a monetary donation, you can bring a new or gently used item to be gifted to a family in need for the holidays. A list of items needed is below.
- Warm hats
- Warm gloves
- Warm socks
- Warm coats
- Holiday canned food items (Boxed mashed potatoes, dry stuffing, canned vegetables, etc.)
We hope to see everyone in the food court to eat breakfast with Santa Claus and to contribute to a local organization that serves the community. For more information about Denver Rescue Mission please go to: www.denverrescuemission.org
