Deer Park residents will have the opportunity to see Santa and his firefighter companions on four different days this week. Each day’s journey will take place between 6pm and 9pm. 

  • On December 18th, they will cover the area north of Crawford Street and west of Colville Road. 
  • On December 19th, Santa and friends will visit neighborhoods north of Crawford Street and east of Colville Road. 
  • On December 20th, the group will make their way through neighborhoods south of Crawford Street and east of Colville Road. 
  • On December 21st, they will wrap up their tour in neighborhoods south of Crawford Street and west of Colville Road.


December 22nd will serve as a makeup day if, for some reason, a day or location was not reached, ensuring every child has a chance to see Santa.
