Santa is Coming to Town!

Big Red Sleigh

Thank You for sharing a ton of Christmas Cheer & Holiday Spirit.

Santa Steamboat IIInstead of calling on Comet, Cupid, Donner and Blitzen, Santa has asked to use the Steamboat Springs Fire Rescue’s (SSFR) Big Red Sleigh to share the holiday spirit and joy of the season with the Yampa Valley over twelve days leading up to Christmas.

“The station received a call last night from an unknown telephone number claiming to be an associate of Santa Claus,” chimed Firefighter/Paramedic Marnie Smith with SSFR. “They said Santa was looking for a way to visit the Yampa Valley and all the good boys and girls and asked if he could ride on atop our sleigh so his reindeer could rest for the big day.”

Santa's Big Red Sleigh Tour

Over the twelve days leading up to Christmas, Santa Claus will visit a different neighborhood atop a bright red fire truck each evening.  The parade is anticipated to start around 4:30pm and last approximately one-hour while traveling through the areas listed below. The tentative schedule may change due to weather, road conditions and staff availability.
