Saturday, Dec. 2, welcomes visitors from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., while the event wraps up on Sunday, December 3, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

For those with an appetite for more than just holiday cheer, Saturday morning offers a special treat with pancakes with Santa. Hosted by the San Angelo Lions Club, the breakfast, served in the stables from 7:30 a.m. to 11 a.m., is priced at $8 per person for breakfast only or $12 per person for both breakfast and event admission. Children four and under are admitted free.

On Sunday morning, the San Angelo Cowboy Church takes the reins with a hearty "Chuck Wagon" breakfast featuring scrambled eggs, sausage, biscuits & gravy, fried taters, and coffee. This savory experience is available from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m., with a ticket price of $13 per person.

Beyond the meal offerings, attendees can immerse themselves in the unique charm of the historic fort. Explore Christmas shopping in the fort's historic buildings, witness living history reenactments, capture memories with Santa in festive photos, and enjoy a backdrop of seasonal music and more.
