What’s more fun than Santa on his sleigh? How about Santa on a fire truck! Readers Mitzi and Jane reminded me about his upcoming appearance in Gig Harbor, which reminded me to check other area stations. Sure enough, St.Nick will be hanging out with his fire fighting friends all over the south sound. In some neighborhoods he’ll actually drive by on a fire truck, while others will have open houses where kids can come take pictures with Santa and meet fire fighters (total toss up about who my 5 year old would be more excited about)!
All these events are free, but each department is encouraging you to bring a canned food donation. Did I miss your area? Let me know!
