Santa Claus will resume his legendary trek through Fanwood to deliver presents to our boys and girls on December 18th. Last year’s ride was just a drive-by because of the COVID pandemic. This year, the presents are back.

The Santa Parade is a volunteer effort organized by the Fanwood Fire Department, which collects the presents, organizes them into Santa’s route, then does the delivery with a fire engine, accompanied by the Fanwood Rescue Squad and police officers from PBA Local 123.

There are specific dates, times and rules for present drop-off at the fire department. Click here for the rundown.
