It’s been a Christmas tradition at the Coon Rapids American Legion for many years.
The Coon Rapids American Legion and its Ladies’ Auxiliary hosted their annual Breakfast with Santa event Saturday morning.
There were more than 180 registrations for the event.
Besides eating breakfast and having orange drink – there was coffee for parents – children could have their face painted.
But the real purpose of the event was the chance for children to visit with Santa Claus (Ray Christianson) and Mrs. Claus (Arlene Wilson) and go home with a gift.
