Santa Claus made an early trip to the city of Bryan for a special event on Thursday night.
Instead of Rudolph and company, Santa got a ride to Sue Haswell Park on a Bryan fire truck for the Ninth Annual Holiday Magic event.
The event, which is free, is hosted by the City of Bryan.
Holiday music, lights and even snow created a holiday atmosphere for yearly family gathering.
Recreation Manager Ashley Bennett says this year, officials were anticipating 3,000 to 5,000 parents and kids to make their way to the park.
On top of all the games and rides, families also enjoyed cookies and hot chocolate.
