Fire trucks escort St. Nick on tight schedule
The Continental Village Volunteer Fire Department will escort Santa Claus in the Continental Village, Westchester Lakes and Dogwood Road areas on Sunday, Dec. 9. If the weather’s bad, Santa will ride on Sunday, Dec. 16.
A schedule of when Santa expects to be in the area appears below. The fire company asks that children are ready to meet Santa at the appropriate time, especially if photos will be taken. This will help Santa keep to his schedule and keep other parents from having to repeatedly answer the question, “When will he get here??” There will be two crews visiting simultaneously.
