BAKER, LA (NBC33) — People in Baker were ringing in the holiday spirit last night by going on a wild ride at the Baker Wal-Mart.
The Bake Fire Department offered rides to anyone who donated a new unwrapped toy in their fire truck or Baker Police Department's dare car.
Santa was on hand to hear Christmas present wish lists. The Baker Rotary Club will help distribute all those donations - making sure the toys go towards helping out needy children in Baker.
"It has really picked up,” Howard Ward, Baker Fire Department, said at the event last night. “I think we got almost two baskets filling up really good and we're excited as you saw earlier. Our guys really have fun with it."
If you are in the dancing or donating mood, don't worry, you haven't missed all the fun.
The event will continue tonight and on Saturday at the Baker Wal-Mart on Groom Road.
