December 6, 2021 – Santa Claus will make a safe – socially distant – visit to Santa Monica on Saturday, accompanied by fire engines, police cars and motorcycles.
The ride around town, sponsored by the Santa Monica Police Officers Association and Santa Monica Firefighters Local 1109, will bring “some much-needed Christmas cheer” to Santa Monicans, public safety officials said.
“For the past 25 years, Santa Monica public safety officials have brought Santa Claus to area parks as part of the annual Candy Cane Drive. This year it took some creativity and determination to bring St. Nick to the locals.” said the organizers.
“This has been a year of recovery and it is comforting to see our traditions return,” said Lt. Rudy Flores, Executive Officer of the Chief the Police.
“The Candy Cane Drive always brings a smile to young and old.”
Starting at 10 a.m., Santa and his helpers will “move from neighborhood to neighborhood so residents can come out, wave a socially distant hello and take a few photos,” said public security officials.
This year, Santa can be tracked by scanning the QR code shown below, so people can avoid congregating or waiting for Santa to arrive.
