HO! HO! Santa’s coming to The Marq Southlake all week long!

The holiday season officially kicks off at The Marq Southlake when Santa comes to visit with your family the week of December 5-12, 2020.

Mr. Claus himself wouldn’t miss making a special trip to Southlake to hear Christmas wishes and to enjoy breakfast with your family. Southlake Parks and Recreation’s annual Breakfast with Santa will continue holiday traditions with a full breakfast, crafts, and printed photo opportunity. Santa and Mrs. Claus will be sure to maintain their distance for the photoshoot, but don’t forget your wish list for Santa, and parents, bring your cameras!

Families with children over 10 years old are encouraged to wear masks except while seated and eating and drinking. Breakfast will still be as scrumptious as always but will be individually boxed and served to your table directly! Parents must register with children. Children under the age of two are free and do not need to register.
