Track Santa Through Redmond, WA

 

The city has launched its brand new GIS application at redmond.gov/santa. Residents can use the app to see where Jolly Ol' Saint Nick will be on any given evening and even track his immediate location in real time.

Now through Dec. 21, Santa will be traveling neighborhood to neighborhood in an antique fire truck supplied by the Redmond Firefighters Union Local 2829.

This Santa is hoping residents will help fill his bag - contributions of food, presents and money will be shared via a local charity, Hopelink. The tech? No, not Microsoft, but Esri.
