The West Sacramento Fire Department, in conjunction with the West Sacramento Firefighter’s Association, presents the annual “Santa Run” through West Sacramento neighborhoods.
With the help of many off-duty firefighter “elves,” Santa will be riding through various streets upon a decorated fire truck “sleigh” and handing out candy canes—donated by the West Sacramento Firefighter’s Association. Additionally, Santa will have a pickup truck following his “sleigh” with helpers collecting any canned food donations for those in need.
The West Sacramento Firefighter’s Association sends a “big thanks” to all those who come out to make canned food donations as well as its appreciation to the Fire Chief and the City Manager, for permitting the usage and decoration of the ladder truck for this annual tradition.
The Santa Run is scheduled on the week nights of December 12th thru 16th and December 19th, beginning at 6:00 p.m. each night.
