The Newport Fire & Police Departments will be assisting Santa Claus to tour the neighborhoods of Newport and Santa’s routes for the evenings of Tuesday, December 8th, Thursday, December 10th, Tuesday, December 15th and Thursday, December 17th have been finalized!
While the weather might be a bit chilly, we hope it is going to cooperate.
Beginning on Tuesday, Dec. 8th, Santa and his Newport Fire & Newport Police escort will leave from Fire Station #2 on Old Fort Road at 5pm each night and will continue until he has completed his tour of the listed area.
Parents, as a reminder, to be safe please make sure that your children are accompanied by an adult and that they greet Santa from the sidewalk and do not enter the roadway. Santa will not be able to stop and pose for photographs along the route because he has to return to the North Pole to prepare for Christmas. Santa is looking forward to seeing all of the City’s children, but does not want any of them getting hurt.
