Children's Tea Party with Mrs. Claus

While Santa Claus hustles and bustles in preparation for the big night, Mrs. Claus is doing much more than sugaring Santa’s cookies and shining his shoes. Once again, Mrs. Claus, accompanied by Santa’s elves, will travel all the way from the North Pole to be the guest of honor at the Christmas By the Sea children’s tea party at the Hampton Inn, Main Street Chincoteague, on Sunday, Dec. 11th. The event has garnered so much attention, and with limited seating you must call now to reserve your child’s seat for 2PM. “Santa agreed that I could come,” said Mrs. Claus . “It’ll be lots of fun.” Mrs. Claus, who knows Santa better than anyone, will show the children a scrapbook of her life with Santa. She’ll offer sing-a-long Christmas songs, games and gifts. After the children have had their hot cocoa, kid-sized sandwiches and Christmas cookies, they’ll have an opportunity to have their photo taken with the Queen of the North Pole. “They’ll learn things that will surprise them,” said Mrs. Claus. Pre-paid reservations are required at $15 per person. Call 757-894-0924. The children are encouraged to dress for a tea party. Accessories will be available for guests who do not have something. The Hampton Inn has free parking, easy access, and room for those escorting our Tea Party guests. For more details: Call 757-894-0924 .
