Kings Park Fire Department Annual Christmas Parade

We've got the list of stops where you can see Santa as he travels the town via fire truck.

 

Each year Santa becomes an honorary member of the Kings Park Fire Department and receives a town wide escort as he travels through the town on the back of a shiny red truck.

This annual tradition, which has been a part of Kings Park for 31 years, takes place on Dec. 15. with a 2:30 p.m. start at the firehouse. There will also be a food drive so trade Santa a non-perishable good for a candy cane when he comes by. Be sure to watch and listen for the trucks.

Here's the schedule, times listed are approximate:

A note from the Kings Park Fire Department- Please come out and support your community, help participate in our annual food drive. Canned foods will be accepted at all stops.

We have received phone calls from residents disappointed about the changes in stops over the passed few years. While we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, any moves were made purely for safety reasons. We as members of the department enjoy doing this parade every year, and want to continue the tradition as well as keep it safe for all the residents and children that come out each year. Any questions can be forwarded directly to the presidents office at the firehouse 631-269-6846 ext 209 or through email: president@kingsparkfd.org. Thank you, and we look forward to seeing everyone on Saturday.

Went to KP Shopping Center tonight and no parade. But there is a flyer outside one of the stores that says the parade is December 21st. The date is wrong on this article.
