Santa Claus is coming to town once again, but this year he’ll have a different itinerary.
A holiday tradition since 1995, Santa visits South Whidbey families on his vehicle — a fire engine-turned sleigh.
Volunteers from South Whidbey Fire/EMS will join Santa on his tour across the South End, visiting communities on the nights of Dec. 11, 13 and 15.
The sleigh can be heard from afar; residents just have to listen for the Christmas music and sirens.
Santa’s route begins at 6 p.m. each night. Below are his routes.
MONDAY, DEC. 11: Begin at Honeymoon Bay Road, then Chipshot Way, Antelope Drive, Spinnaker Drive, Sealawn Boulevard, Haines Road, and Harbor Hills Drive.
