Salina, Kan., (November 1) - Ol' Saint Nick is inviting all the good girls and boys to fly, drive, walk or run to Candy Canes and Airplanes, Dec. 3 at 2 p.m. at the Salina Municipal Airport's Hangar 600 located at 2720 Arnold.

Project Jingle Bells is underway in full force this week, as word blew in from the North Pole that Santa intends to use the Salina Airport as a temporary base for the month of December.

Father Christmas cited the 12,300-foot runway, K-State's state-of-the-art recreation center and CAV Aerospace's de-icing capabilities as some of the many reasons he chose Salina.

"Santa wanted to come down about a month in advance to put the finishing touches on the infamous Naughty and Nice List," explained a spokes-elf for the Kringle Camp. "He plans to visit numerous locations on the airport and hold a fly-in and open house for all the good girls and boys in the area."

Plenty of Christmas cheer will fill the hangar as children will get face time with the Jolly Old Elf and his contingent of Christmas folk traveling with him. K-State student organizations will provide souvenir photos with Santa as well as fun activities and crafts, all available for a small donation. Civilian and military aircraft will be on display and prizes will be given away throughout the day.
