Santa's coming to Dickinson in oil truck instead of sleigh

DICKINSON, N.D. — Santa Claus is coming to town ... in an oil truck.

When Kris Kringle arrives at Prairie Hills Mall in Dickinson on Dec. 1, he'll do so not in a sleigh but in an oil field truck accompanied by fire and police vehicles.

“Oil Field Santa” will recognize all of the families working in western North Dakota's booming Oil Patch. Santa says he'll wear a bright red traditional oil field worker's fire retardant suit, with work gloves, a hard hat, safety glasses and steel-toed shoes.
