Olivia Dunmeyer, 4, whispers a secret to her friend Madison Galilei, 7, during the 5th annual breakfast with Santa at the First United Methodist Church in Belle Vernon on Saturday, December 7, 2013. They were with Olivia's grandparents, Kathy and Richard Dunmeyer, of Monessen.

Santa and Mrs. Claus were out and about in the Mon Valley this weekend as the countdown to Christmas Day is underway.

Our roving photographer captured some of the sights Saturday at the fifth annual “Breakfast with Santa” held at the First United Methodist Church in Belle Vernon.

At the Monessen Civic Center, the Christian Center Church in Rostraver Township hosted a “Family Fun Day.”

Through the church outreach program, parents and guardians could select gifts, winter coats, boots, gloves and hats for their children.

The event also featured games, crafts, treats and a food basket giveaway.
