On Christmas Eve, Santa Claus will be busy. On top of the many gifts he’s going to deliver and the generous helpings of milk and cookies he will likely consume, he will also be making the rounds in both Cranbrook and Kimberley.
In Cranbrook Santa will be toured around by Cranbrook Fire and Emergency Services.
Santa will ride through the city on Thursday, Dec. 24 beginning around 4 p.m.
Cranbrook Fire and Emergency Services said the schedule is an educated estimate, but they will do their best to help Santa get to as many areas of the city as possible.
The Santa Claus Christmas Eve city tour schedule goes as follows:
• 4 p.m. – 5 p.m. Steeples School and Park Royal area
• 5 p.m. – 6 p.m. Fire Hall and Highlands School area
