It’s mid-December and the Holiday events season is in full swing around Tysons.
In Vienna, the Volunteer Fire Department will host its annual All You Can Eat Pancake Breakfast tomorrow, Saturday, at 400 Center St. S. From 8 a.m.-12 p.m., the department will be serving pancakes, sausage, bacon, juice, and coffee. At 9:30 a.m., Santa Claus will arrive to green children or adults at the breakfast, and is scheduled to stay until 11 a.m.
The Fairfax County Sheriff’s Office will be on hand to provide a free photo of your child and take a set of fingerprints using clean, inkless technology to help authorities in missing child situations.
Tours of the fire equipment at the station will be held at 9, 10, and 11 a.m.
But for the pancake averse, there’s plenty more to do across Tysons, including a live Christmas event featuring Chewie the camel.
