It’s Christmas In July all over the place – including Monday night at the Tennessee Smokies baseball game, where Santa & Mrs. Claus were invited to come out to the game and help the Smokies fans celebrate!
The Singing Santa & Mrs. Claus
After a late afternoon storm blew through, the temperature dropped, the Smokies staff squeegeed the field, and The Singing Santa entertained the crowd before game time with a sentimental performance of “Tender Tennessee Christmas” – what else?? Later, he sang the National Anthem to start the game – fantastic as always.
Lots of young people stopped by to meet and talk with Santa and Mrs. Claus, and to show off their elf tatoos (check the backs of their hands). Don’t you like Santa’s new summer shirt? We think it’s pretty spiffy.
It's never too early to remind Santa how good you've been so far this year!
Here they sit, waiting for the gates to open – no doubt Santa is thinking about all the wonderful toys he’ll be bringing to girls and boys this year – and whether the elves are on schedule to have everything ready by Christmas Eve.
Even the Smokies’ mascot, Slugger, wanted to get a photo with the Big Guy!
If you get a chance, take in a Smokies baseball game this summer – on Monday night, they beat the Southern League North’s leader, the Chattanooga Lookouts. There’s a lot of fun to be had at the game, for a very affordable price. And you never know, you just may spot Santa at the game…
