Santa Claus is coming to Rocklin

-A +A


Once again this year, Santa Claus has requested the assistance of the Rocklin firefighters in escorting him through the 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 Dec. 3-6 and Dec 10-13 from 5:30-9 p.m.

Santa has so many houses to visit that he must keep moving in order to make his rounds 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 children and families remain on the sidewalk and not try to approach the vehicle. Also, leave all 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 Dec. 3-6 and the northern half of Rocklin Dec. 10-13. Occasionally, inclement weather prevents Santa from making his scheduled rounds, but be assured that if he is rained out, he will make every attempt to reschedule for the nights of Dec. 17 and 18.

Rocklin firefighters urge families to be fire safe throughout the year and know that Santa and the Rocklin firefighters wish everybody the very happiest of holidays.
