Santa is coming to town and the Penobscot Regional Communications Center is ready to relay his whereabouts on Christmas Eve.

In a post on Facebook published on Wednesday, the Penobscot Regional Communications Center announced that they will be tracking Santa across Penobscot county in their Annual Santa Bolo (Be On the Look Out). 911 dispatchers will take to cb radios to communicate where Santa is on Christmas Eve so those listening in can anticipate his location throughout the Maine County.

The communications are expected to kick off at 5:30 on Friday evening and anticipated sightings throughout the county will be relayed every 10 minutes from there, following Santa from the top of Penobscot County in Patten and ending around quarter past 7 PM in Dixmont.
