Santa touring Pelham on Christmas Eve

By NEAL WAGNER / City Editor

Six Pelham Fire Department engine companies will help Santa visit children throughout Pelham on Christmas Eve.

Saint Nick’s tour will begin at 3 p.m., and will include stops at the Food World Plaza, the Publix near the intersection of U.S. 31 and Alabama 119, the Publix off Huntley Parkway, the Dollar General on Shelby County 261 and the Ballantrae Clubhouse.

Because the schedule is flexible, and may be interrupted by Fire Department emergency calls, Pelham Fire Chief Danny Ray encouraged residents to be prepared for Santa to visit before or after his scheduled arrival time.
