Santa will be visiting Sumner and Milton this coming weekend, his first stops on his annual Santa Run with East Pierce Fire and Rescue.

You’ll know Santa’s coming when you see a slow-moving firetruck with its sirens on.

St. Nick will be hitting the pavement in Milton first on Dec. 2 from 3 to 5 p.m., and then parades around Sumner on Dec. 3 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Santa will be also visiting Lake Tapps, Bonney Lake, South Prairie, Edgewood, Buckley, Prairie Ridge, Tehaleh and Driftwood Point from Dec. 9 to Dec. 20.

While Santa and his firefighter helpers are helping spread holiday cheer, the International Association of Firefighters Local 3520 and the East Pierce Fire and Rescue Volunteer Firefighter’s Association, who help sponsor Santa’s visit to the Plateau, encourage families to donate to them non-perishable foods to be distributed to local food banks.

Routes maps can be downloaded on East Pierce’s website.

If you have any questions, Santa can be contacted at santaiaff3520@gmail.com.
