2022 Santa Run Schedule

Santa has made his list, and checked it twice!! The volunteers of Hughesville VFD and EMS will escort Santa around our community with fire trucks and ambulances. Please plan for him to arrive between the hours of 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm on Friday evenings, and 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm on Saturday & Sunday.

Santa wants everyone to have a safe and enjoyable holiday season. Please remember it is hard for Santa and the elves to see everyone in the dark, so please do not approach any apparatus unless it is stopped. Due to the size of the fire trucks, the elves have picked streets specific for fire trucks to be able to turn around on. See you all soon!!!

NOTE: Santa runs will be canceled due to weather and emergencies without notice. Please continue to check this schedule or Facebook for any changes!! If you live on a new street, it will most likely be covered in the day that covers streets around you. 


Your local volunteers frequently offer donation opportunities through the mail, but we also have Venmo! Your funds help us to maintain equipment and continue to provide fire prevention in the local community. We appreciate all your support. All donations are tax deductible.




Helping your local volunteers has never been easier!
