More than 100 children of all ages joined Santa for a pancake breakfast on Saturday, September 30th in Fairfield, Texas.

They had their faces painted, played “Pin The Nose on Rudolf,” made Christmas ornaments and had a “Crazy Sock” exchange.

The kids also penned their wish lists, delivering them personally to the Jolly Old Elf.

This annual event is hosted by Fairfield Chamber of Commerce and is sponsored by several local businesses, who supplied snacks and door prizes.

The Chamber says, “THANK YOU to all our volunteers, sponsors and all those that donated door prizes.”

Business Sponsors:  Kennedy’s Korner, East Pine Design, Fairfield Lake State Park, Fairfield Donuts, Darlings & Divas Couture, Juls by Jul, Brenda’s Closet, Sonic of Fairfield, Community National Bank & Trust, GADCO, Freestone Medical Center, and CETA.

“Our Events would not be possible without the help of some many folk that LOVE WHERE THEY LIVE…Thank you to everyone for your awesome support,” says Chamber Executive Director Brenda Pate.
