Steamboat Springs Fire Rescue’s Big Red Sleigh is making rounds this week with Santa in tow.

Over the days leading up to Christmas, Santa and Mrs. Claus are visiting different areas in the city each evening through Christmas Eve, riding atop the firetruck’s bucket.

The parade route is expected to start at 4:30 p.m. every day and should take about 60-90 minutes to travel through the area. Steamboat Springs Fire Rescue will do its best to get to everyone, but people should know that that routes may change at the discretion of the driver and due to weather.
