SANTA PLANNING TOUR OF OWINGS MILLS - STARTING DECEMBER 17th

Its December, and you know what that means? 

SANTA

Our plan this year is to stop at common areas where large groups of people can gather to see Santa. We cannot make it to every street, this way we can give everybody an equal opportunity to see Santa by having our community come to him.

It's important to note that Santa cannot get down from the fire engine. His large belly makes it tough to get up and down. If needed, one of our firefighters can pass a message to him.

Let us know your there, flashlights and flashing porch lights helps. 

There are some streets that we just can't get down easily. If your neighborhood is listed for that night and you hear sirens, try to get out to a larger road to see Santa. Especially for dead-end streets and tight courts.

If you have a special need for Santa to visit your home, please send us a private message and we will TRY to accommodate requests. Santa is pretty busy this time of year. We ask for a donation of your choice to the fire company to do this.  

Donate

Sometimes we have to take Santa on emergency calls with us. If we can, we will get right back out after the call. If not, stay posted to Facebook for updates on makeup dates. 

Don't forget that tree sales are still going on at the fire station. Stop down if you need a tree.

Santa Claus will begin his visits around 6:00PM and he will finish around 8:30PM.

** TIMES MAY VARY BASED ON EMERGENCY RESPONSES.**

The streets listed are meant to give the general neighborhoods, and not be a full list. If we were on your street before, there is a good chance you'll see Santa again.
