Santa Claus is coming to town and he's trading in his reindeer for a horse.

St. Nick visited the D&B supply store in Jerome to visit with kids after riding down North Lincoln on his horse.

This is the second year Phil Dawson has played the role of Kris Kringle, even growing out his beard this time around.

Dawson explains why it's so important to give back this time of the year, saying, "I do it for the kids. You know, that's my joy. Of course I do a lot every chance I get, you know. That's what it's about."

Popular items asked for included electronics and guitars.

Dawson and his horse Lane are well known for their cross-country treks.
