Santa Will Be Visiting The Neighborhoods Soon!

Santa's Sleigh 2012
Santa’s Sleigh 2012

Starting on Saturday, December 7th, Santa will begin making his annual trip through the neighborhoods we serve in Cabin John, Bethesda, and Potomac, MD. As tradition dictates, the volunteers of Cabin John Park VFD will be assisting Santa as his “elves”. As Santa makes his way through the neighborhoods, toys will be collected for a local shelter to be given to kids who will not be celebrating Christmas at home this year.

If you would like to donate toys, and help support us, we ask for unwrapped gifts appropriate for any age child (approx. 18 years of age and younger). If for some reason you are unable to await the arrival of Santa in your neighborhood, you may donate the toys in person at fire station #10 at 8001 River Road, Bethesda, MD.

Santa’s “sleigh” (Engine 710B) is being prepped for his journey this year, and we will be sure to share a video of it when it is ready.

Below is the schedule. Please be aware and understanding of the fact that Santa will cancel his journey for the night due to weather, or other factors beyond his control. We do not want children waiting out in bad weather to see Santa, and when bad weather or a major emergency strikes, the volunteers may cancel the trip to make sure that our day-to-day service remains uninterrupted.

This schedule is subject to change, so to stay up to date with plans, be sure to follow CJPVFD on our Facebook Page.
