Santa Tour

Mills River Santa Tour 2021

Santa on Fire truck

Saturday, December 11

9:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

The Mills River Fire Department, in partnership with the Mills River Parks and Recreation Department and the Henderson County Sheriff's Office, will be bringing Santa Claus to Mills River neighborhoods on Saturday, December 11. Santa will be traveling through Town on a big red fire truck bringing holiday cheer to the boys and girls of Mills River. The Santa ride-along will begin at 9:30 a.m. and we hope to complete our Santa Route by 4 p.m. Due to Mills River's size and mountainous roads, we will not be able to travel up each road but will pass through as many neighborhoods as possible. For those not along Santa's Route, we will have designated "Santa Stops" for folks hoping to catch a glimpse of the jolly old elf and get a candy cane from his little helpers.

Santa Tracker

On Saturday, December 11th, we will have a live GPS tracking of Santa's location around Town so residents can follow along his route and get a better estimate of when he might arrive in your neighborhood!
