Santa Claus toured the City of San Diego as he spread Christmas joy as he visited children throughout the town.

On Tuesday night, despite the foggy weather the San Diego Volunteer Fire Department escorted Santa to his destinations.

As Santa went through neighborhoods to find the district's selected students other children rushed out to meet him. With a smile and a Ho, Ho, Ho Santa greeted each child.

The volunteer fire department and Santa gave out approximately 70  gifts. 

The fire department collected toys during the San Diego Alumni Tournament held on Saturday. Toys were also donated by Generation Fitness.
