For a Santa visit with true Texas flair, you’re going to want to stop into Texas National Outfitters in SoCo to meet Santa on Horseback — because even the jolly old elf is happily “keeping it weird” in Austin. Children of all ages can pose for a free photo with Austin’s Cowboy Sam (a.k.a. “the 6th Street Cowboy”) dressed as Santa on Friday, Dec. 19 from 4-7 p.m.

Texas National Outfitters is a shop located at 1115 South Congress that offers boots as well as Texas crafted home goods, jewelry and apparel. For more info about Austin’s 6th Street Cowboy, you can visit his website.

Enjoy a little “yeehaw” with your  “ho, ho, ho!” Don’t forget to bring your own camera.

Have fun!
