2018 Santa Run Schedule
The following is a list of neighborhoods, subdivisions, and street directions to help describe when and where Santa will visit neighborhoods atop the Burke Volunteer Fire and Rescue Engine Sleigh. We have modified our routes in order to reduce the number of runs we perform, and provide more efficiency in our movements. To view highlighted maps showing the route that Santa will take on each night, please click on the date below. If your street is not highlighted, please come to the next closest street in order to ensure that you do not miss Santa! Along with this information, the Santa tracker (via the Glympse App) will be available to track Santa’s movements. The interactive map in the Santa tracker will highlight places Santa has already been. On weekdays, Santa Runs will take place between 6:00 pm and 9:00 pm. On weekends, Santa Runs will take place between 5:00 pm and 9:00 pm.
Please email Santa@bvfrd.org if you have any questions or concerns about the Santa Runs.
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, Facebook, and Twitter page.
PLEASE NOTE THAT 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 BEING OUR HOLIDAY RUNS. WE WILL DO OUR BEST TO VISIT EVERY AREA, BUT MUST BALANCE THAT WITH BOTH SAFETY AND TIME CONSTRAINTS.
