The Owensboro Convention Center has announced plans for its 4th Annual Breakfast with Santa event and it's a month away in downtown Owensboro.

Last year, I was invited to come by and spend time with Santa, Mrs. Claus and my friends at the Owensboro Convention Center and German American Bank.  Last year, due to COVID-19, Breakfast with Santa was a drive-thru event.  It was REALLY windy and cold (in fact, at one point I think we had to catch Santa's tent and keep it from flying across the front lawn like his reindeer), but it was a heckuva lot of fun.


And there's good news for all your little elves.  Jolly Old Saint Nicholas is coming back to town to host a very merry breakfast again and, this year, we're going back inside the Owensboro Convention Center.  So, you'll be able to park your cars, come inside and get ready to eat.

Tickets for the 4th Annual Breakfast with Santa are $10 in advance or $12 at the door.  Children 2 and under will be admitted free. The Owensboro Convention Center is also offering Family 4-Packs of tickets for just for $32.  At just $8 per ticket, that breaks down to even "merrier" savings. ($8 per ticket) in advance.


The menu's pretty delish too.  There will be pancakes (all-you-can-eat) and sausage, plus, your choice of juice, coffee, or hot chocolate!


And, of course, there will be photos with Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus!  While your little ones are there, they can hand-deliver their letters to the big guy himself.


There will be some COVID-19 safety protocols in place for the event.  As of now, face masks will be required inside the facility unless you are sitting at your table.


Tickets are on sale now and available online at and at the Owensboro Convention Center Box Office.  Breakfast with Santa is Saturday, December 11th from 7:30am to 10:30am CST.

SEE INSIDE: The House and Filming Location from 'A Christmas Story'

The classic Christmas film is set in fictional Hohman, Indiana (which doubled for Hammond) but was filmed in Cleveland. The tour was a blast. Hey, I love visiting movie sets.
