Updated: Santa’s Ride is ON for Tonight, December 22
UPDATE 12/22: Apparently Santa does NOT have a raincoat and will be riding “shotgun” (can we please have a better phrase for this) in Engine 1.
According to the elves in the Weston Fire Department, Santa’s Ride is ON for tonight, December 22, in spite of the forecast rain. Did you think he was made of sugar? Nope, Father Christmas is weather independent. You can read more about this year’s set-up here (no stops except at Intersection of Doom and traffic lights, oh wait, maybe no stopping at all. Dear teenagers, do as we say, not as we do. These are official fire folks and Santa).
There will be many trucks, engines, official cars,
and reindeer in the parade which starts at the North Pole, aka the coveted northside, at 6 pm. Put on your slicker and head outside to wave to Santa in his sleigh- please see the routing and approximate times below.
