GRIDLEY, CA (MPG) - Santa is coming to town! The holidays are here!

Your Gridley Fire and Police Departments used their contacts at the North pole, along with a little Christmas magic, to invite Santa to Gridley for a special tour of our town. He is graciously taking time out of his busy holiday schedule to ride our very own Gridley Fire Engine through the city and bring extra holiday cheer to our community.

Santa would like to see everyone and will be traveling through the city over two separate evenings, December 11th and 12th starting at 6:00 pm.

For more information and the maps showing Santa’s routes visit the Gridley chamber of commerce Facebook page, the Gridley Herald Facebook page or

Santa won’t be able to drive every street but will be a short walk away from every home. For everyone’s safety, keep children and pets on the sidewalk during Santa’s visit. Please keep in mind, the event is weather permitting, and the times are subject to change. It will be no secret when Santa will be there, just listen for the magic.
