Santa to visit Rocklin with help from firefighters
Once again this year Santa Claus has requested the assistance of the Rocklin firefighters in escorting him through the local non-gated neighborhoods of Rocklin to visit children of all ages. Santa rides atop a fire engine and his helpers pass out candy to all the good boys and girls. This excursion is planned for December 3rd -13th, Monday through Thursday (weather permitting) during the hours of 6:00 - 9:00 p.m.
Santa has so many houses to visit that he will be unable to stop at each one, but he can't wait to see your smiling faces. Since he will be traveling in a very large fire engine, it will be important that you and your family remain on the sidewalk and not try to approach the vehicle. Also, please leave your pets in the house so as not to frighten Santa's helpers.
It is Santa's intention to visit the southern half of Rocklin on December 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th, and the northern half of Rocklin December 10th, 11th, 12th and 13th. Occasionally inclement weather prevents Santa from making his scheduled rounds.
Please be fire safe throughout the year, and know that Santa and the Rocklin firefighters wish you and yours the very happiest of holidays.
