The Spring Lake Park-Blaine-Mounds View Fire Department’s Santa Tour is returning next week for its 40th year to help local food shelves.

The department will have four Santa parades: West Blaine on Monday, Dec. 6; East Blaine on Tuesday, Dec. 7; The Lakes/TPC neighborhoods on Wednesday, Dec. 8; and Spring Lake Park and Mounds View Thursday, Dec. 9. All parades start at 6:30 p.m.

To help celebrate the Santa Tour’s 40th anniversary there will be new and improved viewing locations, route changes and special grand marshals lined up for each night.

The parades will collect monetary donations and non-perishable food items for Hope Church in Blaine and Ralph Reeder Food Shelf in Mounds View.
