Santa Claus Is Coming To Town! (On A Fire Engine!)
By Public Information Officer Bill Rehkopf
November 20, 2023

It's almost time...Santa Claus is getting ready to make his annual trip through the Sykesville and Eldersburg area on top of a fire engine!

Our annual "Santa Runs" begin Sunday December 10 and run through Saturday December 16 from 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

Note that, due to safety concerns, we will no longer be driving the fire engine down cul-de-sacs or dead end streets. Please see the routes below and come out to the nearest main road to greet Santa!

As always, the routes are subject to change due to weather and/or emergency calls. We appreciate your understanding and support!
