White_Beard_SantaSanta Tour

Mark your calendars, because Santa is returning to Mills River on Saturday, December 10, 2022. The Mills River Fire Department, in partnership with the Mills River Parks and Recreation Department and the Henderson County Sheriff's Office, will be bringing Santa Claus to Mills River neighborhoods. Santa will be traveling through Town on a big red fire truck bringing holiday cheer to the boys and girls of Mills River. Due to Mills River's size and mountainous roads, we will not be able to travel up each road but will pass through as many neighborhoods as possible. For those not along Santa's Route, we will have designated "Santa Stops" for folks hoping to catch a glimpse of the jolly old elf and get a candy cane from his little helpers. More details to come!
