NEWS FLASH From the North Pole: Santa to Make Scouting Visits to Davidson – Dec. 8 and 9

by | Dec 5, 2022

Santa Claus is scheduled to make a reconnaissance trip to Davidson on Dec. 8 and 9 with the help of the Davidson Fire Department.


Santa Claus will be in Davidson for a brief pre-Christmas Eve visit to review his route with the Davidson Fire Department. Santa will transfer from his sleigh to a fire engine for a ride about town on Thursday, December 8 from about 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. (for Town of Davidson locations WEST of the East Rocky River roundabout) and Friday, December 9 from about 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. (for Town of Davidson locations EAST of the East Rocky River roundabout).

 Santa’s time is limited and turning around in cul-de-sacs and dead-end streets is difficult for the fire engine. If you live on a cul-de-sac or dead-end, please observe from the entrance of your neighborhood so you can see Santa on his route.

 “We look forward to driving Santa around town to scope out his Christmas Eve route, and we hope residents will come outside and wave as he makes his way around the neighborhoods,” said Davidson Fire Chief Ryan Monteith. Both Santa and the Davidson Fire Department encourage town residents to pay close attention to the Santa routes and to listen up for sirens as this will signal the arrival of Santa in the neighborhoods.
