Get a glimpse of the most popular man of the season, as Santa Claus and his helpers will be riding on a fire truck through the streets of Coral Gables on Saturday and Sunday, December 22 and 23 before heading back to the North Pole. This marks the ninth year of a holiday tradition of Santa visits through Coral Gables neighborhoods. Coral Gables Firefighters will transport Santa and other special guests on three separate routes (North and South poles) around the city where he will pass by as many homes as possible, giving out candy canes to all the boys and girls along the route who have been extra good this year. Listen carefully for the holiday sound of the fire truck. Please remember Santa has many streets to cover and all the times are estimated.

Santa will not be able to safely make his way down every street. To make sure that as many boys and girls are able to safely catch Santa going near your home, Santa will be coming down major thoroughfares in your neighborhood.
