IDAHO – Don’t let the antlers fool you, that’s no reindeer Santa’s riding on.

Kris Kringle hitched a ride on a red nosed camel named Ralphie in Idaho Falls Friday.

Santa showed up astride his not-so-traditional steed to help kick off an old-fashioned Christmas exhibit at the museum of Idaho.

In addition to pictures with old Saint Nick and Ralphie, the event featured tree lighting, nativity scenes, and gingerbread houses.

Santa claus figurines were also on display.
