Calling all departments... Who amongst us is worthy of the coveted "Santa's Parade Cup"? This cup is presented to the department with the best decorated truck and that department has the honor of keeping the cup at their station for the year. It is passed from department to department. Last year the cup passed from the 2015 champ, the Adirondack regional airport who won the honor of best decorated truck with their "Airport Fire and Rescue Vehicle" to the 2016 defending champs SLVFD's own Ladder 144. A ton of fun in true "Griswold" fashion there is no such thing as over decorated!!!

The parade is sponsored by Home Energy of Saranac Lake and over the years has grown to be quite an event. The parade has its roots with an annual event in Saranac Lake where Santa Clause was delivered with a fire truck escort to the town hall to meet with area children. Today Santa Clause is still delivered but his procession has grown into a full fledged competition drawing all the local fire departments and has included departments from as far away as Peru and South Plattsburgh.

This is great fun and a great way to start the holiday season. We hope to see you there.

The parade will kick off at 6:00pm on Friday December 8th. The parade can be viewed all along Broadway from Van Buren Street and proceed down Broadway to deliver Santa to the awaiting children at the Harrietstown Town Hall.

We hope to see you there.

A special thank you to the sponsor of this event. Home Energy of Saranac Lake.
