A holiday tradition since 1995, the team at South Whidbey Fire/EMS have devised a safe and streamlined way for the South Whidbey community to experience Santa’s Sleigh this year. Instead of visiting communities each evening over the course of a week, a drive-thru set up at Bayview Fire Station, 5579 Bayview Road is planned for Thursday-Saturday, Dec. 10-12.

Participants will simply drive up the hill to enjoy lights, music, decorations, goody bags and greetings from Santa. All visitors will remain in their vehicles and follow safety guidelines, including wearing masks and social distancing.

The plan is to spread out the visits over several hours. The time to visit on Thursday and Friday, Dec. 10th and 11th is between 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. The time on Saturday, Dec. 12th is between 4:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.

Donations of non-perishable food will be collected for Good Cheer Food Bank (donations are optional).
