Every year, the Pacific Coast Air Museum welcomes jolly old St. Nicholas to the Charles M. Schulz-Sonoma County Airport, and this year is no different. On Saturday December 17, the Man in Red will be flying in to the grounds adjacent to the Museum in a helicopter provided by Helico Sonoma.
Gates open at 10:00 a.m. and Santa comes in on short final at about 11:00 a.m. Santa’s actual arrival time may vary, depending on weather, helicopter availability, and the many scheduling issues that arise around working with reindeer and elves.
This free event is open to the public, and will feature free bags of goodies for the kids, a chance for them to whisper their holiday wishes into Santa’s ear, jumpees, and more. For the first time, we will have a Kids’ Zone with a table of Lego building bricks, sponsored by Fundemonium. Food like that at our Hot Dog Thursdays will be available, plus some special additions. Local radio station KZST will be doing the announcements and broadcasting the event live. A couple of our famous open-cockpit aircraft will be open so you and the kids can look inside, and even sit in the cockpit of some! The Gift Shop will be open, with wonderful toys and other gift ideas.
We are grateful to Active 20-30 of Santa Rosa, #50, for sponsoring this happy annual event!
This is PCAM’s holiday gift to the community, and that day only we will not be charging admission. Santa will stay until there are no more kids to talk to, and this usually means we close up around 2:00. So arrive early!
This is an outdoor event, so watch the weather reports and dress appropriately.
Visit the Pacific Coast Air Museum website for more details.
Bring the kids! Tell your friends! Have some fun!
