Santa is Coming to Town!

Big Red Sleigh

Santa Steamboat IIYou better watch out.
You better not cry.
You better not pout.
because I’m telling you why


Kris Kringle will be stopping into the Yampa Valley again and is asking to use the Steamboat Springs Fire Rescue’s Big Red Sleigh to share the holiday spirit and joy of the season. 

“We must be on the good list again as the fire station received a call from Santa Claus asking for assistance in sharing the holiday spirit with Steamboat Springs,” chimed Fire Chief Chuck Cerasoli. “Santa’s reindeer need to rest for the big day, so we’ll put our sleigh to use while he visits all the good boys and girls in the Yampa Valley.”

Santa's Big Red Sleigh Tour

Over the seven days leading up to Christmas, Santa Claus will visit different neighborhood areas atop a bright red fire truck each evening.  The parade is anticipated to start around 4:30pm and last approximately 60 to 90 minutes while traveling through the neighborhoods. SSFR will do its best to get to everyone, but please understand that routes may change at the discretion of the driver and that day’s weather. The tentative schedule may change due to weather, road conditions and staff availability.
