Santa's Coming!

Santa on Fire truck

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 on Saturday, December 10.  Santa will be traveling through town on a big red fire truck bringing Holiday cheer to the boys and girls of Mills River. The Santa ride along will begin at 9:00 a.m. and Santa will return to the North Pole by 5 p.m.  Due to Mills River's size and mountainous roads, the fire truck will not be able to travel up each road in Town, but will pass through the Town’s main roadways and as many neighborhoods as possible. 

For those not along Santa's Route, you can catch a glimpse of the jolly old elf at one of the designated “Santa Stops.” Santa’s helpers will be on hand to give out candy canes to any children they see along the way. 

To find out when Santa will be in your neighborhood visit to find out an approximate time of arrival. On Saturday, December 10 beginning at 9:00 a.m., you will be able to track Santa live via GPS on our website and on the new “Mills River Parks & Recreation” Facebook page. Please remember that all times are estimates and we cannot guarantee arrival times. The best way to know Santa is coming to use the live tracker, listen for sirens and to look for the flashing lights coming down the street!

For all the details on the Mills River Santa Tour 2022 please visit our web site at or call Mills River Town Hall at 828-890-2901.
