LURAY, Va. (WHSV) - Santa traded in his sleigh for a fire truck in Luray. On Thursday, the Luray Fire Department took to the town, spreading Christmas cheer and blaring sirens for all the boys and girls to hear.

The fire department has passed out toys to kids for over 20 years in the community, and even the cold couldn't keep the young and the old from greeting Santa.

"Over the years they've come to know that when the siren is blowing and it's coming in to their subdivision, Santa's coming on a fire truck. And we actually have a lot of older people who enjoy seeing that too," Santa said.

The fire truck made its rounds on Monday and Wednesday as well, and folks in Luray say they look forward to this event every year.
