Saddle Up and See Santa

Join Alamo City Moms for a one-of-a-kind Santa experience just north of San Antonio in Boerne at Enchanted Springs Ranch a private venue open just for us! We’ll have hot chocolate, activities, a face painter, and more BUT most importantly a one-on-one visit with Santa and a photo by the photographer from Happy Thoughts Studio. Then stay and see the tiny cowboy town transform into Old West Christmas Light Fest and enjoy as long as you’d like! Your ticket includes admission and all the fun Old West Christmas Light Fest has to offer.

Get Tickets Here!

(Please note: Tickets will NOT be sold at the gate.)

Check back often as we add new partners! 

Our top 5 reasons to attend Saddle up and See Santa:

5. The holiday season is short this year – get it started ASAP!

4. Complimentary hot chocolate and s’mores!

3. Enjoy Old West Christmas Light Fest earlier in the day than if you arrived when the gates open (which is awesome for littles with early bedtimes!)! We get the whole venue for our private event.

2. There are activities for kids of all ages (including the big kids!) and something that everyone will enjoy – so older siblings will enjoy your visit as well!

1. A digitally delivered professional Santa photo with basically no line (we limit the number of tickets and tell you when to come to see Santa so you don’t have to wait!) at a value that simply can’t be beaten.
