Santa Claus is coming to town Sunday in a brand-new fire truck and will be making his rounds for two hours, starting at 1 p.m., if the weather permits.
Santa’s parade, which is sponsored by the SSCA, will start at the Southern Shores Fire Dept. station on South Dogwood Trail and then travel to stops at Sea Oats Park, the Hillcrest Beach parking lot, the Chicahauk Trail parking lot, and the Kitty Hawk Elementary School, before moving on to Martin’s Point. Children and their parents may wish to wait for Old St. Nick’s arrival at one of these locations.
In other holiday news, Southern Shores town offices will be closed Friday, Dec. 23, Monday, Dec. 26, and Tuesday, Dec. 27. Trash and recycling will be picked up on the usual days. (Dec. 26th is a federal holiday.)
Christmas trees cleared of all decorations may be placed in the Town right-of-way for pickup during the regular limb and branch collection, according to sectors. Wreaths will not be collected.

Happy holidays to all.
