This year, Waite Park is doing away with the annual holiday parade, and instead driving Santa right to your house on a fire truck. It's called the "Santa Cruise," and The Waite Park fire department will drive Santa door to door to deliver treats and pick up Christmas lists.

Ken Schmitt of the Waite Park Festival Committee says the decision makes sense.

Schmitt says there will be three trucks making rounds in different neighborhoods this Sunday, December 19th from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. For more information, you can call 251-3322.
