Since 1955, the folks at North American Aerospace Defense Command (or, as it’s better known, NORAD) have kept track of a sleigh pulled by eight reindeer. Coloradans were in on the tracking right from the early days with NORAD right in our backyard — Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado Springs to be exact. In the 1950’s, curious souls had to telephone in to find out Santa’s flight path.
Hello, 2018! Now everyone can track Santa’s route (online or on their smartphone using an app) on Christmas Eve, as well as receive updates from the North Pole by checking out NORAD Tracks Santa. [Read more…] about Track Santa’s Flight on Christmas Eve

The event is so popular that it is held twice — once in Cherry Creek and then the following week in Belmar. [Read more…] about Twice The Deals! Shop YouthBiz Holiday Marketplace
