CONCORD, CA (Dec. 4, 2023) — While the reindeer were resting up for Christmas Eve, Santa hopped a flight to Concord Dec. 2 for a meet and greet at the Concord Crown Plaza.

Kids and families captured the joy of the season with photos with Santa, exciting raffle prizes and a chance to donate to the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano.

The event was hosted by Contra Costa County Public Works Airport Division.
