Santa Claus will be getting to various Keizer events in December thanks to his friends at the Keizer Fire District.

Old St. Nick will be in town first for KFD’s Santa Breakfast on Sunday, Dec. 14.

He will sit for photos with the kids and adults alike for a nominal fee to support the Keizer Volunteer Firefighters Association. The menu includes all-you-can-eat pancakes, eggs and sausage. Milk and coffee will also be served. The cost of the breakfast is $5 for adults and $3 for children age 12 and under. Meal service begins at 7:30 a.m. and wraps up at 11:30 a.m. Pictures with Santa are $2.

Santa will be back on Saturday, Dec. 20, for Keizer’s annual Candy Cane Day. He’ll come packing sackfuls of candy canes as the fire district vehicles carry him from street to street delivering the canes to all the good little girls and boys.

He will travel every street except short cul de sacs, where the vehicle will stop short and volunteers will sound the siren to invite children to come out.

Santa and district volunteers will begin delivering candy canes at 8:30 a.m. The route is not announced in advance, so keep an ear out for the music and sirens.
