About 100 kids and their families came for the for the event, which started off with brunch at Frenchie’s before moving to the Enchanted Florist where they got to sit on Santa’s lap, tell him their Christmas wishes and receive an early present.

While the event is geared to bring smiles to kids’ faces, it’s also a food and blanket drive for Blanket Express and S.O.S. Community Services.

Families donated nearly a truck full of food and 200 blankets for the area’s needy resident.

“It went very well this morning,” Laura Lanzon, owner of Enchanted Florist who started the event with Linda French five years ago, said. “We’re hoping to make it even larger next year.”
