Neither snow nor rain nor a pandemic can keep Santa Claus from making his first stop of the holiday season in Cranberry Township – though this year’s visit will look a little different.
With the annual Santa’s First Stop event canceled for 2020 due to gathering limitations, the Jolly Old Elf will instead make his way around the Township to visit residents on Santa’s Jingle Bell Tour. Santa will not be in a winter sleigh, but atop one of the Fire Company’s fire engines.
Set for noon to 2 p.m. Saturday, December 5, the tour will be led by Cranberry Township Fire, Police and EMS crews who will direct Santa through Community, North Boundary and Graham parks. Residents are invited to gather – at a safe social distance – in the park nearest their home to welcome Santa to the Township. Santa will not be stopping for individual photographs, but it’ll be a great opportunity for families to see Santa as the holiday season begins.
The tour will travel from the Route 19 Fire Station to Community Park, North Boundary Park, Graham Park, the Municipal Center and finishing at the First Station.
