It has been over a century long tradition of the Columbia City Fire Department (along with Santa Claus) to hand out a 1lb bag of candy and oranges to the children on Christmas Eve from 6pm to 8pm at the Court House. This candy is purchased through fund raisers and donations which costs about $2,000 a year. This has been a wonderful event for the community to see the children stand in line to see Santa and get their bag of candy. Approximately 600 lbs. of candy plus oranges is given out at the Court House every year. Any donations are greatly appreciated as it gets harder and harder to raise these funds every year. Donations can be sent to the Columbia City Fire Department at 112 South Chauncey Street, Columbia City, IN 46725
