Santa Claus is coming to town ... very, very soon.

Fairfield rolls out the red carpet for the Big Man in Red on Saturday, with festivities planned from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. downtown on Sherman Green, corner of Post and Reef roads. The holiday tradition is again being organized by the Fairfield Chamber of Commerce.

Santa, of course, will greet young fans, and the event will also feature horse-and-buggy rides, a petting zoo and hot cider.
