Santa wore shades while riding with the Ringing Hill Fire Company on an earlier run
SANATOGA PA – Lower Pottsgrove’s two volunteer fire companies will be busy this weekend with holiday activities geared toward township families.
Both the Sanatoga and Ringing Hill companies will conduct their annual Santa runs, in which Santa Claus (or a reasonable facsimile thereof) rides atop their fire trucks as they drive across portions of the township.
- Sanatoga plays host to St. Nick on Saturday (Dec. 17) from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.; a list of its scheduled stops appears below. Its alternative date for inclement weather is Sunday (Dec. 18).
- Ringing Hill escorts Santa around the township’s northern half on Sunday (Dec. 18) throughout the mid-morning and afternoon, according to township Manager Ed Wagner.
Santa will wave to those who wave or blow their vehicles’ horns at him, and perhaps toss a candy or two to deserving boys and girls.
Looking ahead, Ringing Hill reports it will conduct bingo games, open to the public, on New Year’s Day (Jan. 1, 2017) at the firehouse, 815 White Pine Ln., Pottstown.
