Kids of all ages invited for breakfast, crafts, fun Dec. 14


Santa Claus is coming to the Humble Civic Center Dec. 14 and children of all ages are encouraged to join Santa, Mrs. Claus and the elves.

“This is our very first breakfast with Santa Claus and it’ll be the place to be for sure,” said Jennifer Wooden, director of the Humble Civic Center and Arena Complex and the Charles Bender Performing Arts Center.

The Magical Breakfast with Santa is Saturday, Dec. 14 from 9-11 a.m. at the Humble Civic Center. Cost is $25 each for young and old. Tickets can be purchased on the Humble Civic Center Facebook page or in person at the Humble Civic Center, 8233 Will Clayton Pkwy. in Humble.

“I was inspired to bring this to Lake Houston when I took my granddaughter to another Santa Breakfast last year,” said Wooden. “We don’t have anything quite like it here where we live so I thought it’s time for the Humble Civic Center to bring a bit of the Christmas spirit to our kids and grandkids as well.”

A ticket to the Magical Breakfast with Santa includes a buffet-style gourmet breakfast catered by Chef Adrian Cousin and his team from In House Chefs and Catering. While munching on Cousin’s flavorful and stylist breakfast, the kids will be able to share their wish list with Santa and Mrs. Claus, take some special holiday photos that their families will cherish, and experience some winter wonderland fun making holiday crafts.

“Our hope is to capture some holiday magic for kids young and old, and to begin a very special holiday tradition right here in Humble,” said Wooden. “This is a special event that our community wants because we’ve had thousands of views on our Facebook page. I would encourage families to purchase their tickets now.”

Magical Breakfast with Santa is one of numerous Christmas events taking place in Humble during the holiday season. The City of Humble presents their first Michael Hix Christmas Party on Dec. 14, featuring the singer with an impressive vocal range in his third appearance at The Charles Bender Performing Arts Center. Tickets are $15 and are available at or by calling 281-446-4140.

The Bender and civic center has a full 2020 entertainment schedule including The Humble Voice, co-presented by the City of Humble, and The Humble Rodeo and BBQ Cook-off, Jan. 10 and 11. Ten talented finalists will compete to perform during celebrity concerts at the Humble Rodeo in February. Tickets for the final round Jan. 11 are $10.

Also scheduled during 2020 is “These Shining Lives,” Jan. 18, a stage play based on the true story of female factory workers in the early 1900s who contracted radiation poisoning. Tickets are $10.

The Vitacca Dance Project performs ballet Jan. 25, Violinist Rob Landes and Pianist Rob Landes, two different yet very talented musicians, will perform together for the first time Feb. 29. Jade Simmons returns to The Bender stage with Part 2 of her “experience” March 21, and local powerhouse Sarah Grace performs April 25.
