Santa Claus will be in Flower Mound for the town's Santa Around Town program.

The details

Beginning Dec. 11, Santa will team up with Flower Mound Fire Department personnel to decide the best route to take on Christmas Eve. This is the first year for the program, said Melissa Demmitt, communications director for the town of Flower Mound.

Each night from 6-8 p.m. through Dec. 15, firefighters with the Flower Mound Fire Department will escort Santa around local neighborhoods on a fire engine, according to a town news release.

Town officials will publish a live Santa Tracker so people can track where Santa is during each night of his visit. Once the tracker is live, people can find it here.

Quote of note

“This is the busiest time of the year for Santa, and while he’d love to travel down every road in town, he just won’t be able to fit it into his schedule,” Demmitt said. “If you don’t see your street on his planned route, don’t worry. Just walk or drive over to the nearest street he’ll be riding down and wave hello. The fire engine will be traveling slowly through these neighborhoods, so you’ll have plenty of time to get a look at Santa. Just make sure you keep your distance from the firetruck.”
