Tis the season to see Santa and there is a good chance you might see him thanks to your local fire department. Along with all the things Hudosn Valley Fire Departments have going on this time of year they still find time to host Santa.

Hopefully, you haven't missed Santa traveling through your town on the back of a fire truck. I am a grown-up and I still get excited when all the trucks go by and Santa is on one of them.
