The Robstown Area Development Commission hosted the 16th annual Christmas at the Plaza event on Saturday at Centennial Park in Robstown.

Santa Claus himself arrived at the event on top of a Robstown Fire Department truck, much to the amazement of the children, who lined up around the block to get a chance to sit with Santa and receive a goody bag, courtesy of the City of Robstown, H.E.B. and Sassy Girlz Boutique.

More than 1,000 residents filled the park, to not only spend time with Santa, but also listen to live music and watch dance team performances throughout the night.

Sponsors for the night's festivities were the Robstown Area Development Commission, City of Robstown, Port of Corpus Christi, H.E.B., Robstown Utilities, Nueces County and Sassy Girlz Boutique.
