December 6, 2021 -- Santa Claus, escorted by fire engines, police cars and motorcycles, will pay a safe -- socially distanced -- visit to Santa Monica Saturday.

Sponsored by the Santa Monica Police Officers Association and Santa Monica Firefighters Local 1109, the ride through town will bring Santa Monicans "some much needed holiday cheer," public safety officials said.

"For the last 25 years, public safety officials in Santa Monica have brought Santa to area parks as part of the annual Candy Cane Drive, this year some creativity and determination was required to bring St. Nick to locals," event organizers said.

“This has been a year of recovery and it’s comforting to see our traditions begin to return," said Lt. Rudy Flores, executive officer of the Chief the Police.

"The Candy Cane Drive always brings a smile to faces young and old.”

Starting at 10 a.m., Santa and his helpers will "move from neighborhood to neighborhood so residents can come out, wave a socially distant hello and snap some photos," public safety officials said.

This year Santa can be tracked by scanning the QR code pictured below, so people can avoid gathering or waiting for Santa’s arrival.
