- Santa's Map(pdf)
Come out and wave to Santa Claus as he rides through town on one of our own Douglas County Fire District 2 fire trucks, with a police escort! We wish that Santa could say hi to all of the children individually, but he needs to stay nice and healthy for his big day...Christmas Eve! Santa will be visiting neighborhoods, within the city limits.
We are not able to visit every neighborhood, due to time constraints, but we will be visiting the larger neighborhoods. We are hoping to expand this event in the future, so please email us with your neighborhood suggestions for next year.
Thank you to Santa for visiting East Wenatchee and thank you to the Wenatchee Valley Fire District for driving Santa around and thank you to the East Wenatchee Police for escorting Santa!
