CLAUS COMES TO TOWN

Santa visits neighborhoods via fire truck

With Christmas around the corner, fire trucks decked in lights and holiday glee led a procession through Islamorada, bringing Santa and Mrs. Claus to a number of neighborhoods to meet children. Thanks to Islamorada Fire Rescue, the big man in red made around 30 visits and drive-throughs from Lower Matecumbe to Plantation Key. Joining the parade were the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office and U.S. Marines, who collected trinkets and toys for Toys for Tots.
