'He's making a listAnd checking it twiceGonna find out who's naughty and niceSanta Claus is truckin' to town!'



Santa makes this special delivery himself in his 53-foot tractor trailer, with an elf helper. The 18 Wheels of Christmas is bedecked in Christmas lights and full to the brim with non-perishable food donations collected across Calgary throughout December.

WHAT: The 18 Wheels of Christmas, lit from tip to tail with Christmas lights

WHERE: Calgary Food Bank, 5000 11 St SE, Calgary, AB

WHEN: Tuesday December 18, 5:30 p.m.

WHY: Let's face it, how often do you get to see grown men dressed as elves or Santa driving a forklift?!

The 18 Wheels of Christmas has delivered more than 230,000 lbs of food and $1,200 to the Calgary Food Bank over the last 10 years.

Join us tomorrow night for cookies, hot chocolate, and the chance to have your photo taken with Santa on a forklift (again ... how often do opportunities like this arise?!).
