Residents might hear some extra sirens in the air this week, but it's no cause for alarm.
From Dec. 20-23, Santa Claus will tour every street in the city to spread the holiday spirit, riding atop the Fire Department's historic 1957 Mack Fire Engine. Santa will be out each night from 5:30-9:30 p.m.
On Dec. 20, Santa will be in southwest corner of the city, on Dec. 21 he will be in the southeast, Dec. 22 in the northwest and Dec. 23 in the northeast. The railroad tracks and Del Mar Blvd are the dividing lines in the city quadrants.
New this year, residents can track Santa's journey in real time to see when he'll make it to their house. Just visit www.raah.co and enter username: San Gabriel Fire Santa Parade and password: santa.
