Here Comes Santa Claus, Here Comes Santa Claus ...Atop A Fire Truck!

An endearing and awesome tradition!


There's nothing quite like the face of a child, eyes bright and wide, seeing Santa Claus riding atop a fire truck. And in Montville, that tradition is a long and much beloved Christmas tradition.

This year, all four departments believe! Chesterfield has already done their Santa run, but Mohegan, Montville and Oakdale fire departments have yet to do theirs so make a note on your calendar!

Montville Fire Department will do its Santa run on Dec. 22 beginning at 12 noon. The truck will travel various streets within the fire district.

Mohegan Fire Company also has Dec. 22 as its Santa run day, albeit in the evening beginning at 5 p.m. And I was told they may have more than one truck out! Again, within their district.

Oakdale Fire is still nailing down its date -- it's either  Dec. 16 or Dec. 23, I was told today. We'll get back to you on that!

Yes Ellyn the Mohegan Fire Co will have Santa passing out candy to the kids on December 22nd. We will start around 5 and go until we hit the whole district. We will try to keep a location update on the Montville Watch page so people will know where Santa will be.
