HELENA – Santa Claus will be making a list of stops throughout Helena on Christmas Eve this year thanks to help from the Helena Fire Department.

In order to ensure that all the children throughout the city have one last chance to see him before they open presents on Christmas morning, Santa will be taking part in three different routes that run throughout the city.

“Santa Claus himself will be touring around in a fire truck, bringing joy and smiles to everyone in Helena,” read an official release from the city on social media. “(It is) a perfect opportunity for families to come together and celebrate the festive spirit. Spread the word and let’s make this a Christmas to remember. Let’s greet Santa as he makes his special journey through our wonderful community.”

The city will host three different routes labeled Green, Red and Gold that will all begin at 10:00 a.m. Listed stops are subject to change or cancellation should an emergency arise or inclement weather occur. Be sure to follow the Helena Fire Department’s Facebook page for any potential updates that may occur.
