It's About Time For Santa To Visit Heatherwood Village -- December 2011
Each year in December Santa rides a Cy-Creek Fire Engine around Heatherwood Village, and his helpers throw candy and toys to the children that come out to see him pass by. This usually happens one or two Saturday's before Christmas about 10am. They go down every street in the subdivision, so you hear the sirens long before he gets to your house, and they go slow so everybody has a chance to make it to the street in time to see Santa go by.
Santa and his helpers were driving down
