Alpha Fire Company ready to offer Santa a tour of region

Each year, Santa and his elves make a special appearance throughout the Centre Region on Christmas Eve — on an Alpha firetruck.

Is Jolly Ol’ St. Nick trading his sled for a shiny red truck? Well, maybe just for a few hours.

Santa will leave Station 5 downtown between 4:30 and 5 p.m. on two concurrent routes, and begin a trek through several neighborhoods. So, if you want to catch Santa and his elves, below is their routes.
