Everyone at Santa Central is currently working to resolve the issues with our big green sleigh. Santa didn’t go for the idea of letting or engine drivers borrow his reindeer for the evening and hooking them up to our ride. Please stay posted and we will update everyone as soon as we know if tonights run is a go. Thanks for your patience!

Santa Run Stopped

Ladies and gentlemen, it seems as though luck is not on the side of our big green sleighs. We have to stop the remaining Santa run for tonight. Our back up engine right now is having to limp back to the fire station with a critical issue. Seems that the daytime job these engines have has taken their toll. We should have our other engine back to us soon in order to resume our Santa operations. We are working hard to bring the big guy to your neighborhoods and will keep you posted. Again, we apologize for any inconvenience.

Santa Tracker

Thanks to our friends at McLean Volunteer Fire Department, the Santa Tracker will be live starting tonight.  Just click on Santa below and the tracker webpage will open.  There is no need to refresh the webpage as it will update automatically as Santa moves around on his sleigh.  The tracker should start once the run begins!
