Kids can meet a Santa of color at the annual Mocha Moms of Long Island “Brunch with Mocha Santa” on Sunday in Massapequa.

“It’s relatable for our children,” says Noret Bazemore of Freeport. “They sit on Santa’s lap. They take pictures with Santa. There’s caroling going on while we’re eating. There are little games for the kids. Everybody gets to mingle.”

The all-you-can-eat brunch includes pancakes, grits, home fries, eggs, biscuits, toast and more. It is from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at a new location this year: the VFW 7277 at 191 Veterans Blvd., Massapequa. Cost is $40 per adult and $35 per child 4 and older, and tickets must be purchased in advance at
