Santa Comes to Town on Fire Truck

Santa Claus will ride through a neighborhood near you between Dec. 16 and 23.

Santa Claus makes early rounds through Dunedin neighborhoods starting Dec. 16.

Dunedin firefighters are giving him a lift (along with some of his elves) aboard a fire truck so he can hand out treats to his young fans between Dec. 16 and 23 (between 6 and 9 p.m.). He'll leave each night from around 5:45 p.m., according to fire officials.
