Spring Valley FD's annual Christmas parade brings holiday cheer, presents to community's children

Christmas came early Saturday night for some very happy children in Spring Valley, thanks to the Spring Valley Fire Department's annual Christmas parade.
Also known as the "Santa Drive-By", the annual event is a crowd favorite among families in the village.
The parade route kicked off at the Spring Valley Hook and Ladder Fire Station. The one-hour long procession made its way throughout the streets of the village, stopping as a fire truck-riding Santa Claus handed out toys and presents to the excited children.
The toys and gifts are all donated and given to the children as a way of saying "Merry Christmas" to the community.
