(DeLand, FL) – Santa Claus will be taking a break from his usual Christmas preparations in order to visit city neighborhoods throughout the month of December.

City staff members have been negotiating with the Christmas authorities in the North Pole and we were able to free up some time for Santa to visit several neighborhoods in DeLand.

Santa’s first appearance be at City Hall shortly after the DeLand Christmas Tree Lighting beginning at 5:30 p.m. Friday, December 3. After the tree lighting, Santa will then travel to Pioneer Park in downtown DeLand for a wreath lighting ceremony as a part of the City of DeLand and MainStreet DeLand Association’s “Winter Wonderland DeLand” holiday display.

Instead of his usual sleigh and reindeer, Santa will be aboard the city’s trusty steed (“The Sutherland” antique fire truck) for his trips through the city. The Grinch may also be making an appearance during Santa’s rides through the city. City Commissioners are also expected to join Santa on the neighborhood visits.

Each route will start at 6 p.m. and end around 7:30 p.m.
