Santa Express set to return to Chesterville

The Santa Express in 2020.

North Dundas Fire Station 4 will continue its annual tradition of hosting Santa Claus for a final tour around the village of Chesterville shortly before he sets off on his long journey to deliver gifts to the world’s children on Christmas Eve.

Santa will depart the Chesterville Fire Station on December 24 at 4:30 pm, along with firefighters and vehicles to make his journey extra special. “It is our intent to have Santa ride on the ’53 Heritage Pump, although that will be a game day decision,” said Chesterville firefighter, Sean Donovan. 

Firefighters will also be collecting food donations for the Christ Church United Food Pantry during the journey. The truck will journey down every street in Chesterville village limits during its pre-planned route, to ensure that every local child can experience the fun. 

“This will be the third year Station 4 has done this,” Sean added. “Our firefighters wanted to do something to help boost the Christmas spirit for our village, and what better way than to help Santa see as many children as possible on Christmas Eve. It also gives us the opportunity to collect food donations for the United Church Food Pantry to help those in need this holiday season.”

Be sure to wait at the end of your driveway on Christmas Eve, kids!
