Santa to parade around Folsom

By November 23, 2010

Santa will arrive in Folsom on Dec. 9.

Here comes Santa Claus! Folsom Police and Fire staff, along with volunteers, will guide Santa’s sleigh on the annual parade beginning at 5:30 p.m. on Dec. 9 this year.

The project will run nightly Dec. 9-14. In the event of heavy rain, the parade will be rescheduled for Dec. 15-17.

When you hear the Police and Fire Department sirens you will know Santa and Mrs. Claus are in your neighborhood. The police cars and fire trucks will safely escort Santa and Mrs. Claus down your street and stop to greet children at pre-determined locations. They will spend a few moments at each stop handing out candy canes and collecting non-perishable food and toys for the Christmas Basket program sponsored by the Folsom Police Department and Twin Lakes Food Bank. All donations benefit local families in need of a helping hand.

The Police Department sponsors the Santa’s Sleigh program as a community-wide  goodwill effort. Young children and their parents will know Santa’s sleigh is approaching when they hear the police and fire sirens, so listen up!  See the pre-determined routes below.

  • Dec. 9 — North of the river and Historic Folsom
  • Dec. 10 — Natoma Station, mid-town, Prairie Oaks
  • Dec. 11 — Empire Ranch
  • Dec. 12 — Briggs Ranch, Folsom Hills, mid-town
  • Dec. 13 — Lexington Hills, The Parkway
  • Dec. 14 — Broadstone, Prairie Oaks

    That's just great. Folsom is laying off cops, but they've got the money to spend on violating the vehicle code with this frivolous use of lights and sirens? This is not "goodwill", this is a poor use of tax dollars during a bad economy. If you want the police to generate good will, encourage them to behave like professionals, stop camping out behind remote, pointless stop signs or searching for people who are using their cell phones (while they meanwhile type on their MDT's and operated a squad car radio (which requires more dexterity than holding a cell phone to your ear).
