Santa Ditches the Sleigh for a Truck for Annual Santa Run


In breaking news, Santa Claus has confirmed he will be joining Wallacia Rural Fire Brigade (RFB) on board one of their trucks for their Annual Santa Run, later this month.

This year’s Wallacia RFB Santa Run will take place on Friday 24th December (Christmas Eve). Santa will be our very own guest ‘firie’ for the day when he visits the local community with members of the Wallacia RFB there to support him.

Santa will start his trip at 3:00pm on Christmas Eve in William Street, before making his way around the streets of Wallacia to greet all the boys and girls and handout lolly bags to all those that have been good. Our local Wallacia Brigade will be in tow with one of their fire trucks. It’s also an opportunity to pass on your wish list and to grab a photo.

We’ve heard that Santa doesn’t mind a selfie!

You will be able to follow Santa to see where he is as he travels around Wallacia on the local brigade’s Facebook page, with regular updates posted as well as a special ‘Santa Tracker’. It’s your last chance to greet the man in the big red suit before he starts his voyage around the world in his sleigh with his reindeers.

“We are looking forward to the opportunity to catch up with the locals. Some people we don’t see all year and it’s great to see them all, outside of an emergency.

“Even if the brigade is busy, Santa will still get there. We’re committed to the community. We know that he can’t wait to come and visit Wallacia and our wonderful village” said Jody Preston, Captain of Wallacia RFB.

Check out the Wallacia RFB Facebook page for more information. If you are interested in joining the brigade, they are always looking for volunteers.

“Merry Christmas and a happy and safe new year to you all from Wallacia RFB” Jody ended.
