Santa is coming to town

By Megan Wehring
KYLE — Santa will be visiting Kyle neighborhoods before Christmas.
The Kyle Police Department (KPD) will be partnering with the Kyle Parks & Recreation Department to host Santa rides this year. From 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Dec. 13 through Dec. 15, families will be able to wave and see Santa as he rides through designated neighborhoods.
“This is something that we as a city decided to take on,” said Aimee Garcia, recreation programmer, “because the people in Kyle are looking forward to seeing Santa riding through Kyle.”
Santa will be stopping by the northeast quadrant, southeast quadrant and the west side of Kyle, Garcia said. Specific neighborhoods, routes and a tracker to follow along will be updated on the city’s website.
“We found that last year when the Parks & Recreation Department picked up the rides due to COVID,” said director Mariana Espinoza, “it really brought a lot of Christmas cheer to the residents and to the children.”
