The following is a list of the neighborhoods and subdivisions, by name and street directions, to help describe where and when Santa will visit various neighborhoods atop Burke Volunteer Fire and Engine 414B. We have modified our routes this year in order to reduce the number of runs we perform and provide more efficiency in our movements.
To see a highlighted map showing the route that Santa will take on each night, click on a specific date. If your street is not highlighted, please come to the next closest street in order to ensure you do not miss Santa! Along with this, the Santa Tracker will be available online to track Santa’s movements.
On weekdays, Santa Runs will take place between 6:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m., and on weekends between 5:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. If Santa is unable to visit due to weather or other circumstances, makeup days will be announced. If makeup dates are used, the affected boxes and neighborhoods will be listed on the BVFRD website and social media.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or concerns about the Santa Runs.
NOTE: The driver must maintain the safety of Santa and the crew at all times. Unlike responding to an emergency or landing on a roof for the big show, Santa cannot be guaranteed to come down every street. Parked cars, power lines, low branches, and tight roads with limited radius for turn around are the main reasons for bypassing an area. Please keep this in mind as we begin our holiday runs. We will do our best to visit every area but must balance that with safety and time constraints.
