Santa visits French Island


TOWN OF CAMPBELL, Wisconsin (WXOW) – Santa took a break from Christmas preparations at the North Pole to visit children on French Island Sunday.

Santa said the stop was to make sure the kids stayed on the "Nice List" though Christmas.

"Just to double check on the kids to see if there's any special requests, and to make sure the kids who aren't quite so nice do a little bit better job to make sure they don't end up with coal in their stocking in a couple of weeks," said Santa, who's affiliated with the Town of Campbell Fire Department.

The Fire Department used their trucks, covered in wreaths, to pull Santa's sleigh to almost all the public parks on French Island.

They even made house calls to the kids who weren't able to come out.

It's a tradition they've took part in for more than 20 years.

Santa handed out candy and fire safety information to each child.

He ended his route with a spaghetti dinner open to the community.
