Santa will once again be joining East Pierce Fire and Rescue around Bonney Lake, Sumner and surrounding communities to wish everyone happy holidays.

He’s already toured Milton and Sumner, but there are still many more routes for him to complete before he heads back to the North Pole.

For the next few weekends, and even a week day or two, be on the lookout for slow-moving firetrucks and their sirens, which’ll tell you Santa is on his way.

On Saturday, Dec. 9, Santa and firefighters will be parading around the north end of Lake Tapps from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., and on Dec. 10, he’ll be heading through Bonney Lake at the same time.

On Friday, Dec. 15, Santa will be heading through South Prairie and Sierra Heights from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., and on Dec. 16, he’s going through Edgewood from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

On Sunday, Dec. 17, St. Nick visits rural Buckley from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and then Prairie Ridge and Tehaleh from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

His parade around the Plateau ends Wednesday, Dec. 20 in Driftwood point from 6 to 8 p.m.

While Santa and his helpers will be handing out candy and taking photos with kids, the International Association of Firefighters Local 3520 and the East Pierce Fire and Rescue Volunteer Firefighter’s Association, who are sponsoring his visit to the area, encourage people to help others in the community by providing non-perishable food donations for local food banks.

If you have any questions for Santa, he can be reached at santaiaff3520@gmail.com.

You can also go online at courierherald.com or East Pierce’s website for specific maps of Santa’s routes through cities and neighborhoods.
