BEDMINSTER, NJ -- Santa Claus' traditional firetruck ride through Bedminster and Far Hills will take place Saturday, Dec. 21.

Saturday, Dec. 14 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Tuesday, Dec. 17 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Thursday, Dec. 19 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m
Label the bottom of the gift with your child's name and your address. Fill out a form, get your name on the list and you will receive an approximate time when Santa will arrive. His rounds will begin at around 10 a.m. on Dec. 21.
