Santa 25u2019s VisitSanta Claus is coming to town--much earlier than anticipated.

Families are invited to meet Santa, celebrate the holidays and support the Dearborn Firefighters Burn Drive.

The annual event takes place Friday, Dec. 1 and Saturday, Dec. 2, from 6-8 p.m. at the Fire Safety House, 19750 Outer Dr., next to Fire Station Two.

 All are welcome to attend, and there are no tickets or reservations required.

Children will receive goodie bags, cookies, hot cocoa, and balloons. And, of course, they will have the opportunity to tell Santa their wishes. If you wish to take photos with Santa, please bring your own camera or phone equipped with a camera.

 Donations will be collected at the event for the Dearborn Firefighters Burn Drive, a non-profit group aimed at assisting children and people in need.

 Money raised from donations will be used to purchase toys, which will be delivered to children in hospitals by Dearborn firefighters before Christmas.
