Fanwood Santa Parade

December 16, 2012 at 8:22 PM

FANWOOD, NJ – Saturday was an interesting day for Santa, as he made his epic annual journey through Fanwood, handing out presents while riding on a large, red, fire engine.

The annual parade is made possible by the volunteers of the Fanwood Fire Department, Rescue Squad and PBA Local 123.

In the weeks leading up to December 15th, parents were able to drop off wrapped presents at the Fire House so that Santa could deliver them as part of the annual Christmas parade.

A special “thank you” goes out to all of the volunteers who made this event possible.
