Here Comes Santa Down Railway Lane



Conexión San Angelo, Jim Sánchez


Santa Claus made his yearly trek to San Angelo as his Christmas itinerary schedule saw him stop off at the Railway Museum of San Angelo. Old Saint Nick was in town from 10 a.m. -2 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 5, 2020.


SAN ANGELO – “Here comes Santa Claus, here comes Santa Claus right down Santa Claus Lane, Vixen and Blitzen and all his reindeer pullin' on the reins ...”

The 1947 Christmas classic, “Here Comes Santa Claus” had Old Saint Nick come out not by his usual traditional ride on a sleigh; nor with his 12 reindeer. But on a railroad track riding the Texas Pacifico locomotive. Santa Claus’ Merry Christmas 10 a.m. tour stopped off at the Railway Museum of San Angelo over the weekend, Saturday, Dec. 5, 2020.


Families with their children of all ages were gleefully awaiting Kris Kringle with excited anticipation.

As Santa walked by the children and greeted them, one boy asked him. “Are you the real Santa?”

To which he responded, “Yes.”


Santa set up shop outside of the museum as he took photos with all the kids for two hours. The Ice House Brass Band, composed of 12 members played Christmas holiday music, ranging from “Joy to The World,” “Let It Snow,” “Here Comes Santa Claus,” and “Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer”, etc.


Other scheduled activities included the children’s favorite ride, the Choo Choo Express train. As for entertainment there were performances by Angelo Express Athletics, Tiny Sparkles, Mini Glow, and Reckless, West Texans Quartet, Rak Sanan Belly Dancers and Wrather Rhodes.

Santa’s Santa Fe Christmas event, now in its 23rd consecutive year was held from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.

SAN ANGELO – "Aquí viene Santa Claus, aquí viene Santa Claus por Santa Claus Lane, Vixen y Blitzen y todos sus renos tirando de las riendas ..."

Esta versión del clásico navideño de 1947, "Here Comes Santa Claus", no tuvo al viejo San Nicolás con su tradicional trineo, ni con sus 12 renos, sino a bordo de una locomotora de Texas Pacifico. La gira Feliz Navidad de Santa Claus se detuvo en el Museo del Ferrocarril de San Angelo durante el fin de semana, el sábado 5 de diciembre de 2020 a las 10 a.m.


Familias con sus hijos de todas las edades esperaban con entusiasmo a Kris Kringle.

Mientras Santa pasaba junto a los niños y los saludaba, un niño le preguntó. "¿Eres el verdadero Santa?"


A lo que él respondió: "Sí".

Santa se instaló afuera del museo para tomarse fotos con todos los niños durante dos horas. La Ice House Brass Band, compuesta por 12 miembros, tocaron música navideña, incluyendo "Joy to The World", "Let It Snow", "Here Comes Santa Claus" y "Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer", etc.

Otras actividades programadas incluyeron el paseo favorito de los niños, el tren Choo Choo Express. En cuanto a entretenimiento, hubo actuaciones de Angelo Express Athletics, Tiny Sparkles, Mini Glow y Reckless, West Texans Quartet, Rak Sanan Belly Dancers y Wrather Rhodes.

El evento navideño de Santa Fe, ahora en su 23 año consecutivo, se llevó a cabo de 10 a.m. a 4 p.m.
