Santa Run Schedule!!!

Santa's coming and his elves have finished the schedule. Santa will arrive with a parade of fire trucks and ambulances at the locations listed below between the hours of 6:30pm and 9:00pm each night.

Santa wants everyone to have a safe and enjoyable holiday season. Parents are reminded that it will be dark outside and difficult for Santa and his helpers to see everyone clearly. Please hold the children tight until the fire trucks stop moving.

Santa also wants to tell everyone that he cannot get to every street because of the size of the fire trucks. Santa's elves have tried to identify streets that Santa can turn around on.

ONE GROUP MEETING PLACE has been established for those children that do not live in or near a subdivision and will be Santa's only group stop this year! Please understand we have had to drop some streets to make the route more efficient so we can get Santa around to see everybody. Have a great holiday and we'll see you soon!

NOTE: Santa runs will be canceled due to weather and emergencies without notice. Please continue to check this schedule for any changes!!
