The second day the department dressed up as elves and Santa’s helpers and gave shoppers three minutes to pick out as many gifts as possible.

Santa even helped join in on the holiday cheer and gave out gift cards to shoppers.

“It was hectic; it was crazy,” said Deputy Chief Jason Neubauer in a video shared on the department's Facebook page. “We had a great time and a lot of fun.”
