Christmas fire engine returns to South Lake Tahoe for holiday season
On Saturday, Dec. 10, South Lake Tahoe Fire Rescue kicks off its annual tradition of passing out candy canes to children in the community — an event that began approximately 20 years ago. For two weeks, a fire engine decorated for the holidays will drive through a different neighborhood each night and get residents in the Christmas spirit.
All community members are invited to attend the festivities, which start each night at 5 p.m. when the engine leaves Fire Station 3. See below for the current schedule. Residents are advised that this lineup is weather-dependent, and may be changed due to driving conditions and emergency responses.
