The jolly bearded man in a red suit will be making his rounds of Jefferson in the weeks leading up to Christmas. Santa’s tours are sponsored by Fire Company #1 (Milton/Oak Ridge) and Fire Company #2 (Lake Hopatcong). Kids of all ages – and dogs, too – will be greeted around town by Santa and his helpers (including the rescue squad) according to the schedule below.

If the fire truck/sleigh is unable to reach a particular area on the scheduled night, it will be there the next evening. Please do not call the police department with questions about Santa’s schedule, as police lines are for emergencies only.

Santa’s approach will be heralded by the fire truck’s siren; he requests that everyone wait at the nearest cross street. For safety, do not climb onto Santa’s sleigh. Visits will end by 9:00 p.m.
