MANCHESTER, NH – The YMCA of Downtown Manchester will once again open its door to the community for Brunch with Santa. Now in its 13th year, this event has become a fixture in the holiday celebrations of Manchester families. This year’s theme, “Elf on the Shelf,” will create an imaginative and cheerful atmosphere for all to enjoy. Families will have photos taken with Santa, make holiday arts & crafts, hop around in bouncy houses, run through an obstacle course, participate in snowball fights, eat a delicious and healthy brunch, and so much more.

The YMCA invites not only its members, but also the public, to join in on the fun for free. The Brunch with Santa event is Sunday, December 10 from 9:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the YMCA of Downtown Manchester, located at 30 Mechanic Street.

Guests are invited to bring an unwrapped gift for the Angel Tree, to provide for a child in need this holiday season. Donor’s names will be entered into a raffle to win wonderful prizes in appreciation for their donations.

Join friends, family and the community at this annual holiday celebration. For more information, please contact Cindy Lafond, The Granite YMCA Association Healthy Living Director at 603-232-8650 or clafond@graniteymca.org.
