Photos with Cowboy Kringle

Gruene’s own brand of Santa will once again welcome kids, families and even the family pet!

It may look a little different than past years, but as always, our goal is to make your personal Cowboy Kringle visit just as magical as ever!

Guidelines for scheduling your pictures and staying off the Naughty List:

• All Cowboy Kringle visits are by appointments booked online only. Book now.
• Arrive no more than 15 minutes before your booked appointment to avoid forming a line.
• To maintain the health and safety of your children, Cowboy Kringle and our elves, parents should be prepared to help position their children in the photo area. Parents of small children should bring a booster or car seat which can be situated in the sleigh near Cowboy Kringle.
• Feel free to bring props! Hats, headbands, glasses, etc to dress up for a fun Cowboy Kringle photo are encouraged.

Photos with Cowboy Kringle take place in the breezeway between The Grapevine and Gruene General Store in Historic Gruene.
