Whether you have been naughty or nice during the month of December, if you happen to hear sirens near your home, you may want to look outside and see if Old Saint Nick is riding though your neighborhood. Station 85 members will be proudly carrying Santa Claus on top of a fire engine through the neighborhoods in the Milton area. Santa run dates and times are listed below. Please just remember there are many variables which will dictate our visit including the fact that it will be cold and Santa and his helpers will be out for over 2 hours each evening. Below you will find a rough schedule of areas and the dates (weather permitting since Rudolph will not be pulling the fire engine around. Approximate times each night will be from 6:30 to 8:30 pm: December 2nd Town limits of Milton, Cannery Village, Shipbuilders Village, Wagamons West Shore, Heritage Creek.
