Pancho Clos is so excited to be celebrating its 48th Anniversary appearance. Pancho Claus who is Santa Claus’ cousin will be arriving in Lubbock on Sunday, December 22nd at 2:00 p.m. at Maggie Trejo SuperCenter, 3200 Amherst in the Arnett Benson area. He will arrive in FireTruck. Pancho Clos plans to give out toys and bags of fruit with candy to the children who come to visit him.

This project originated here in Lubbock in 1971 by three members of the American GI forum, the late Bidal Aguero, the late Gus Medina and the late Jesse Reyes all from Lubbock. Since its inception, the project has been a huge success with the American GI Forum and mostly with the leadership of Robert Narvaiz. With great excitement, the organization has passed on the project to Fiestas Del Llano, Inc. to continue the tradition that was set out by the founders, the many contributors and countless volunteers since 1971. The project is co-sponsored by the Community Foundation of West Texas, plus other local groups, organization.

Pancho has full schedule beginning this Saturday, Dec. 7 – Dec. 23, 2019. He will also be visiting some retirement homes, along with some schools and visiting CPS and the list goes on.
