Santa’s ‘sleigh’ coming to all corners of South Whidbey

Santa is bringing the Christmas cheer to neighborhoods on South Whidbey next week, but instead of traveling on his sleigh, he and his helpers will voyage on a fire engine.

A holiday tradition since 1995, the South Whidbey Fire/EMS crew and Santa will swing by various South Whidbey communities from Monday, Dec. 12 to Friday, Dec. 16. Each evening visit will be in a different South Whidbey location so all sides of the South End are covered.
