Santa, a parade, a bounce house for the kids and even dinner: Crozet’s hard-working volunteer fire fighters will provide a festive kick-off for the holiday season Sunday, December 4. No need to register if you have a parade-worthy vehicle or group wanting to join the formation. Simply show up between St. George Avenue and Wayland Drive for staging by 1 p.m. The parade will begin promptly at 2 p.m. and follow its usual route along Crozet Avenue to the firehouse.

After the parade, the volunteers invite the community back to the firehouse, where those wonderful firehouse chefs will be grilling food. Santa will climb down from the truck and pose for pictures. Those not in line for Santa can take advantage of a bounce house set up at the site, and examine the fire trucks on display. There will be an ambulance there to explore as well, courtesy of the Western Albemarle Rescue Squad, and plenty of hot chocolate.

Santa and his crew request that people in the community volunteer to help the day of the parade. If you are interested in helping, email [email protected].
