Santa Rides returns to Juneau

    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - Santa Claus is coming to Juneau!

    Capital City Fire/Rescue, Alaska State Firefighters Association Juneau Chapter, IAFF Local 4303, and Douglas Fire Association will once again bring some extra holiday cheer to Juneau as members of CCFR and their families parade the streets of Juneau together with Santa.

    On December 16, Santa will ride through the Mendenhall Valley and on December 17, Santa will visit Lemon Creek before riding through Downtown and Douglas.

    On Friday, December 16, at 6 p.m., Santa will begin his Mendenhall Valley route at Glacier Valley Elementary School and end at Glacier Valley Church of God.

    On Saturday, December 17, at 4 p.m., Santa will visit Gruening Park in Lemon Creek, and then at 6 p.m., Santa will begin his Downtown and Douglas route at Mount Roberts Tramway and end at Douglas Fire Station.

    The city advises to maintain a 6-foot distance from those outside your bubble and wear masks when social distancing is not possible, and that the holiday spirit would not be complete without candy canes; all candy canes will be individually wrapped and distributed by volunteers in masks.
