Pages of History: Santa Claus’ big entrance on a camel

From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, December 1963.

St. Nick rides in on big Arabian camel!

Santa Claus made his official debut in Del Norte County by riding into Crescent City aboard Sherazade, the Arabs camel, led afoot by the Mighty Sahib of the West, Bob Ames, and two trios of colorfully dressed Arabs.

This was the retail merchants committee of the county Chamber of Commerce’s way of kicking off the Christmas shopping season.
