Santa Claus comes to Arlington in December

ARLINGTON — The city of Arlington continues an annual tradition this December, as Santa Claus comes to town.

From Dec. 4-9 and Dec. 11-16, the Arlington Fire Department, city of Arlington employees and Santa's helpers will be escorting the jolly old elf through the streets of the city on a decorated fire truck. Santa's helpers will accept non-perishable food items and monetary donations for the Arlington Food Bank.

Arlington firefighters, city employees and Santa's helpers volunteer their time to work this event each year. While the "Santa run" volunteers are pleased to help the local community with donations to the Arlington Food Bank, no donations are required. When you hear the siren and music from Santa's fire truck, simply come outside and say hello.

Santa's schedule and routes are posted on the city of Arlington website. All routes are set to start at or around 6 p.m. and are subject to weather conditions. For more information, call 360-403-3600 or e-mail
