A Christmas tradition continued in San Francisco — a winter wonderland in front of the fire station on 25th Street.
Local police escorted the two trucks hauling 15 cubic yards of snow from Tahoe, KTVU reported.
The display competition involving firefighters from the various city stations started during the pandemic.
“We wanted to figure out how to create opportunities for the public to get outside safely and have something cool to look at to share with their isolated pandemic pod if you will,” Fire Capt. Jonathan Baxter said.
Even though there was fake snow at the station last year, Capt. Baxter said the community loved it.
They stepped up their game this year by bringing the community a white Christmas, and they’re hoping to come out on top again.
In a holiday decorating competition among San Francisco fire stations, one in particular won the hearts of many by bringing real snow to the city. This, along with the efforts of other participating departments, has also served as a way to continue collecting toys for children in need.
