Santa Claus is Coming to Town...On a Fire Truck

See Santa Saturday and Sunday! Just what our kids need! (And moms and dads, too!)


'There are no naughty children this Christmas,' a cartoon caption read.

This will be a Christmas we'll likely never forget, and for our children, we can make it a Christmas to remember, too, but a good one! 

And Santa on a fire truck is a good start. 

Chesterfield has already done their Santa run, but Mohegan, Montville and Oakdale fire departments will all do their Santa runs this weekend. 


Montville Fire Department's Santa run begins at 12 noon. The truck will travel various streets within the fire district.

Mohegan Fire Company also has Saturday, Dec. 22 slated as its Santa-run day, albeit in the evening beginning at 5 p.m. Deputy Chief Corey Gaetano recently asked that children and parents meet Santa outside, "so we don't miss you."


Oakdale Fire Department has its Santa run Sunday, Dec. 23 at 9 a.m.

Tell Santa Merry Christmas for us.

Karl, You are in the Oakdale fire district and while I don't know the exact streets/route, I do know they'll begin at 9 a.m., according to Fire Chief Murphy. You may want to check with the department, although I can't promise they will be able to provide you with a list of streets, per se, but I'm pretty sure you'll be able to get the general route. Oakdale's # is 859-0502.
