On Sunday, December 22, 2019, Santa Claus will be taking a break from his very busy Christmas preparations at the North Pole to visit Port Jervis.

Santa will once again “deputize” City of Port Jervis Police Officers and Firefighters as official “Elves” for the day to drive Santa around on the PJFD Ladder Truck escorted by police and fire vehicles to visit our city and provide hot chocolate and candy canes to help sweeten the day!

Everyone is invited to join Santa in his visit by meeting him at one of five locations during the day. Santa will be very busy after his visit, and wants to make sure he allows plenty of time to return to the North Pole so he has to follow a very carefully planned schedule.

To help ensure you have the opportunity to see Santa, Santa scheduled the following itinerary:

  • 12:30 pm: Arrive at Engine 5 firehouse (143 West Main Street);
  • 1:00 pm: Arrive at Orange Street fire station (25-27 Orange Street);
  • 1:30 pm: Arrive at Engine 4 firehouse (31 Owen Street);
  • 2:00 pm: Arrive at City Park located on Barclay Street in Tri-States to be
    hosted by Engine 6;
  • 2:45 pm: Promenade @ Downtown Front Street Hosted by Engine 2
