Santa Go Round set for Colwood

Firefighters' annual holiday tradition coming up Dec. 20

Members of the Colwood Volunteer Firefighters Association are getting into the Christmas spirit and will be spreading some holiday cheer and treats to as many neighbourhoods in the City as they can.

This seasonal tradition has taken place for over 20 years, with this year’s Santa Go Round taking place on Sunday, Dec. 20.

Three trucks will head out between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. with a very special passenger for the little ones.

Crews do their best to get every where but often can’t make it down all of the little side streets and cul-de-sacs. So organizers are urging families to meet them on the side of main roads when they hear the sirens or see the trucks coming.

Crew will also be accepting donations on behalf of the Goldstream Food Bank Society and the Westshore Christmas Hamper Fund.
