Santa Riding Through Town on Fire Truck Tonight December 15
Since Santa’s Sleigh is being upgraded in preparation for Christmas Eve NORAD tracking, he will be driving through town on an E-1 Fire Truck, which really seems more comfortable anyway. As of now, the showers expected later this afternoon will not affect the 2021 Weston Firefighter’s Santa’s Ride Parade, but please check their facebook page before heading out to the end of your driveway.
Santa will be covering both north and south side routes in one evening only, tonight, Wednesday December 15 from 6 pm to 8 pm. The North Side approximate time is 6-7 pm, and South Side 7-8 pm. Residents who live along the route should be at the end of their driveways to wave to Santa as the giant red truck-sleigh drives by. For those on the North Side of Town who don’t live along the route and want to view, please head to Town House Road and park to view the parade. For those on the South Side of town and don’t live along the route please go to the High School parking lot and park to view the parade.

Please note that times are APPROXIMATE and since Santa won’t be stopping for cookies like in “normal” years, they could get though faster than normal. Please plan ahead, and know that the sirens will occasionally sound as they head into certain neighborhoods to signal that Santa is on the way.
Thanks, Weston Fire Department!
