Raise your hand if you're excited for the Holiday Season!
As we have done for many years now, the Croton-on-Hudson Fire Department - in conjunction with the North Pole FD - has arranged for Santa Claus to visit the streets of Croton-on-Hudson on Sunday, December 16th from 10:00 AM until 3:00 PM.
Thanks to a little "Holiday Magic," we are able to bring Santa Claus along three different and simultaneous routes through the neighborhoods of both our Village and the Mount Airy & Quaker Bridge Fire Protection Districts in the Town of Cortlandt. With the help of our always cheerful and energetic "CFD Elves," we are able to stop, shake hands, give our candy canes and pose for some of the best photos fit to be posted on Facebook! (Don't forget to tag us!)
In order for this to be as successful as it is each year, it requires just a wee-bit of cooperation and coordination from all of you. If you plan on seeing us in your neck of the woods (and you know you do!), we ask that you get to your "Stop" about 10 minutes early so there's no rushing. And, because of the swarm of peppermint-happy paparazzi and the potential we may have to respond to emergencies, there is always a chance we may be running late to your stop. We will do our absolute best to keep you all informed of how we are doing on our routes via Facebook and Twitter (@crotonfire) throughout the day.
We look forward to continuing this fun-filled tradition with all of you, and wish you all a Happy, Healthy & Safe 2018 Holiday Season!
