BERLIN — Residents and visitors to Berlin will have the opportunity to celebrate Christmas a week early over the weekend. All of the events are being sponsored by the Berlin City Council and friends of the community.

City Clerk Yvette Kearce said the city has planned three events this weekend, including a Christmas parade Sunday afternoon. A breakfast with Santa will be held at 9 a.m. Saturday, and a senior supper will start at 5:30 p.m. Saturday, and both events will be held at the Berlin Youth Center.

Santa Claus himself will be at the breakfast, and Kearce said families can bring their cameras and get pictures with him. All of the children who attend the breakfast will be given a small gift from Santa.

The breakfast is free for all children 12 years old and under, Kearce said. Anyone over 12 years old who would like to eat breakfast will be charged $1.50 per platter, which includes two pancakes, a sausage patty and orange juice or milk.

The senior supper is free and open to all seniors, Kearce said. There will be entertainment provided with the meal, as a Patsy Kline impersonator is scheduled to entertain the crowd.

Kearce said the Berlin parade is scheduled to begin at 2 p.m. Sunday and is being organized by the Berlin Volunteer Fire Department. Members of the fire department with their fire trucks, members of the Berlin Police Department and Mayor-elect Dale Williams will be part of the parade. Members of the Colquitt County Sheriff’s Office, and Sheriff Al Whittington, have also been asked to participate.
