Santa visited local children on a fire truck.

The Seminole Trail Volunteer Fire Department held its annual Santa Run.

The department drove Santa through neighborhoods they serve. They sounded their alarms, flashed their lights, and Santa threw out candy canes from the top of a fire truck.

"He threw out candy canes," said Brooke McFadyen, who came to the Santa Run Friday and Thursday. "I said, 'Happy Christmas.'"

The Seminole Trail Fire Department is collecting food to donate to local food banks. You can drop food off at the station.

The Santa Run's third and final night is Saturday. To find out when the Santa Run may visit your neighborhood, visit the department's website by clicking here for a list of neighborhoods.
