Santa Claus is coming to town (*screams internally*) - and he's coming really soon.

Thanksgiving and the month of November are long gone; it's time to turn our sights to the greatest, most magical time of year - Christmas.

And, here in Northern Colorado, the holiday season is about to get even more magical thanks to a little (okay, big) visit from Mr. Claus himself.

Windsor Severance Fire Rescue is bringing back their annual Santa Tour this year; Santa will be making his rounds around several parts of Northern Colorado between Thursday, Dec. 15, and Saturday, Dec. 17.

He'll be showing up in style, too:

"We’ve been extra good this year, so Santa agreed to spend a few nights riding around in one of our fire engines to say a special “Hi” to the kids of all ages in our fire district.", Windsor Severance Fire Rescue's website reads.

Although Santa won't be able to hit every neighborhood within the 100+ square mile fire district, the route he'll be taking was created with the intention to get Mr. Claus as close to as many NoCo residents as possible.
