[ARCHIVED] Santa Around Town is coming up!

The Deer Park Volunteer Fire Department is excited to continue its annual Christmas tradition in the City of Deer Park – the Santa Around Town tours.
This year from December 14-17, the DPVFD will spend each evening from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. visiting Deer Park streets atop a decorated sleigh, beaming with lights and playing Christmas song favorites.
“The Deer Park Volunteer Fire Department looks forward to our Santa Around Town tours each year,” said Justin Crow, Deputy Fire Chief of Station #2. “These nights are our chance to celebrate the Christmas holiday with our residents and let both adults and children see our department in a friendlier, more casual setting. We hope everyone will bring their families out and spend this time with us.”
As usual, Santa’s helpers will be distributing candy along the route. We do ask that parents assist Santa with keeping small children safe as Santa passes by. 
As in previous years, the DPVFD has provided documents describing the Santa Around Town routes on their Web site, Just click on the Santa Around Town link on the bottom left hand portion of the page and select the blue link for a street-by-street listing, or the red link for a map.
“On our Web site, we have provided a city street index to help our citizens determine which night Santa will be coming down their streets,” Crow said. “Unfortunately, Santa’s sleigh is not able to visit all the streets in the city, whether they are dead ends or because there may not be enough room for our sleigh to turn around.
“The attachment, available through, names each ‘No Turnaround’ street and also details – in alphabetical order – which night we will visit with Santa.”
In the event of a cancellation due to inclement weather or an emergency in the city, the reschedule date will be Sunday, December 18 beginning at 6 p.m. Check the DPVFD Facebook page, “Deer Park Fire Department,” as well as the City of Deer Park Facebook and the City Web site,, for more information. All residents are encouraged to like the “Deer Park Fire Department” Facebook page for year-round updates, event information and more.
