Sunshine Letter | Santa Fly-In roaring success

Santa Fly-In roaring success

Thank you to the amazing team that made the 9th Annual Santa Fly-In to the Truckee Tahoe Airport a great success. More than 600 children and families members watched the sky on a crisp winter morning for the spectacular arrival of Santa’s plane, greeted by a Truckee Police car escort, sirens wailing.

Santa emerged from the plane to the cheers of the crowd and proceeded to his special chair by the hearth where he visited with every child, dispensing holiday gifts including storybooks for all the children.

Holiday crafts and yummy treats were enjoyed and children wrote letters to Santa.

Special thanks to the Airport District and staff led by Kevin Smith and Mike Barrett, Pilot Rob Lober, Secret Weapon Gerald Herrick, First 5 Nevada County, the staff and volunteers of the Family Resource Center of Truckee, the KidZone Museum and a wonderful band of community volunteers including The Great Elf Posse.

Thank you to the Tahoe-Truckee community for all your support!!
