Santa Claus makes an early stop in Central Texas.

The event, held at the Phileo Event Center, brought out more than 300 families, organizers said.

The event was sparked by the success of the Black Santa's Village held in Austin earlier this month.

Organizers say the event was important to the Central Texas community and a way to represent Santa Claus in all nationalities.

Children were able to participate in ornament making, cookie decorating, and of course, take a photo with the man from the North Pole.
