Canyon Lake resident Hans Weg had the honor of escorting Santa in the 33rd Annual City of Perris Christmas Parade on Saturday, December 10, through Downtown D St.

Weg chauffeured Santa in his 1965 Ford Galaxie Convertible, which also this year’s first place parade trophy.

“There were 65 entries in the parade and I was number 65,” Weg said. “Then to top it off, Santa parachuted down from an airplane after the parade, and I got thrown in the Riverside County Sheriff’s jail cell by the Grinch. There were thousands of people watching on the parade route. A good time was had by all.”

Weg has participated in the parade for eight years. This is his second year escorting Santa. 

A replay of the parade can be viewed on Spectrum Channel 3 and the PerrisTV Livestream on YouTube periodically between now and Christmas Day.
