COPPERAS COVE — On Dasher. On Dancer. On Prancer. On Vixen. On Comet. On Cupid. On Donner. On Blitzen. Santa and his reindeer rode their “sleighs” into Lampasas, Copperas Cove and Harker Heights Friday. The group was also accompanied by The Grinch, an elf and a gorilla.
The riders were part of the Lampasas chapter of the Silverbacks Motorcycle Club — hence the primate, which represented a silverback gorilla.
Diane “Mama Sauce” Trujillo of the club said this is the third year it has done the ride that is intended to spread joy and cheer.
Jessie Saucedo has dressed as Santa every time the group has done the ride.
“It’s a lot of fun just to see children come up, getting candy and stuff like that. And then the way people will stop on the side of the road just to wave at us,” Saucedo said.
Santa and his crew stopped at a Valero in Lampasas, the H-E-B in Copperas Cove and the Market Heights Plaza in Harker Heights.
