Santa Fly-In 2021 – Canceled

Santa Fly-In: Canceled

We have decided to cancel the event this year in order to keep our volunteers, our friends and our community as safe as possible. Santa is going to miss seeing everyone, but he hopes that everyone is being good boys and girls and are happy and healthy. He says he hopes to see you next year! 

Santa Claus is coming to the Pacific Coast Air Museum!

Bring the kids for this great family event.

Admission is FREE for everyone this very special day!

During Santa Fly-In, Santa Claus flies into the Pacific Coast Air Museum on a helicopter to greet all the kids and listen to their Christmas wishes.

Our gates open at 10:00 a.m. Santa and Mrs. Claus will arrive around 11:00. Their actual arrival time may vary, depending on the weather. They will be leaving around 2:00 or whenever there are no more kids to talk to, so come early!

You’ll get to sit with Santa and have a lot of holiday fun. There are lots of additional things to see and do during this very popular event.
