Santa on Christmas Eve - a tradition of over 80 years in Parkesburg

This year continues a tradition for decades with Santa visiting the Borough of Parkesburg starting at 6:30 PM on Christmas Eve. And this year like last year, (don't tell the kids) there will be two Santas making the run. The job is too big for just one!

If our math is correct this will be the 80th year.

Please practice social distancing, and wear a mask if you are outside with others, not from the same household.

So listen for sirens and come out to see Santa. The south side of the borough will be handled by Santa1, while the north side and outlying areas are assigned to Santa2. The best bet is to come out to the main road once you hear the sirens getting close.

We may be trying out a new GPS app. A link will be added to this on Christmas Eve once it is set up. You can then check and see Santa's location in real-time.
