Blue And Red Santa Toy Drive Rolls Into Delta County

Santa will be joining the fun as he rides into town on big red Engine 31 fire truck in the Chamber’s annual lighted Christmas Parade. The fire fighters, not reindeer, will give Santa a ride to the Blue and Red Santa event held at the Delta County Civic Center.

This is where the festivities turn into humor as for a price of a new, unwrapped toy citizens or donation are entertained by the series of competitive events between local law enforcement versus volunteer fire fighters and EMS.

The toys will be dispersed to local children of Delta County through the Child Protective Service Angel Tree program.  Each year there are 100 plus children that are signed up by parents for this event in Delta County. These children are from families that are financially struggling and that simply cannot provide much of a Christmas celebration for their families.

Stew and chili plus beverage and dessert will be served.

Santa will also have a listening ear for any children who would like to whisper their Christmas wishes and pause for a free photo. Photos will be found on the Cooper Review Facebook page following the event.
