Santa To Ride Through Streets of Coral Gables Dec 16 & 17
Posted Date: 12/14/2017

Get a glimpse of the most popular man of the season, as Santa Claus will be riding on a fire truck through the streets of Coral Gables on December 16 and December 17, 2017, before heading back to the North Pole. This marks the eighth year of a holiday tradition of Santa visits through Coral Gables neighborhoods.

Coral Gables Firefighters will transport Santa and other special guests on three separate routes (North and South Poles) around the City where they will pass by as many homes as possible, giving out candy canes to all the boys and girls along the route who have been extra good this year.

Listen carefully for the holiday sound of the fire truck. Please remember Santa has many streets to cover and all times are estimated.

Santa and his team will not be able to safely make his way down every street. To make sure that as many boys and girls are able to safely catch Santa going near your home, he and his team will be coming down only on major thoroughfares in your neighborhood.
