posted on Dec 17 2018

Blackfalds, Alberta (December 17, 2018) – The Town of Blackfalds Fire Department and the Blackfalds Fire Fighters Association is once again gearing up to escort Santa around town as he collects food donations for the food bank.

Geotrac and Communications Group will help you keep track of Santa as he makes his way around town. You can follow Santa by clicking here, and updates will happen every minute, so people can watch Santa work his way through town as he gets closer to your home. The link will be operational on the evenings of December 20 & 21.

The Santa Run will start on the West side of Highway 2A, Thursday, December 20 from approximately 5:00 pm to 9:30 pm. The following evening, December 21, from approximately 5:00 pm to 9:30 pm, Santa will be back on their decorated trucks covering the East side of Highway 2A. 

As our town continues to grow despite challenging economic times, the community of Blackfalds continues to find ways to help those in need. Please show your support as the Fire Department and Santa’s entourage make their way through town both evenings to gather non-perishable food items to support the Blackfalds Food Bank.
