Although participants might not be dashing through the snow in a one-horse open sleigh, they can experience Christmas magic during Breakfast with Santa.

Sponsored by the Boardman Kiwanis Club, the event features a pancake and sausage breakfast, crafts for the kids and photo opportunities with Santa Claus. In addition, Brian and Karli Cook of Equine Elegance will help rein in the fun as they offer horse-drawn wagon rides.

The event is Saturday from 8-10 a.m. at the Boardman Senior Center, 100 Tatone St. The cost is $4 per person.

The wagon rides have become a seasonal favorite, providing special holiday memories. People of all ages are invited to climb aboard as the horses cloppity-clop around town. To create a festive experience, people are encouraged to sing Christmas carols — laughing all the way.

Also, why not make a day of it in Boardman? The SAGE Center is offering free admission and activities for families with children Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The SAGE Center is located at 101 Olson Road.

SAGE Saturday features a free winter mug activity. Participants can color the mug and enjoy a warm winter beverage. In addition, it makes a great holiday gift.

And, at 1:30 p.m., there is a meet-and-greet with a minion. The event is followed by a showing of “Despicable Me 3” at 2:15 p.m. The cost is $3 per person, which includes a bag of popcorn. Other concessions are available for cash purchases.
