Santa has notified the Newport Fire Department that he has completed all of the tasks that Mrs. Claus requested and will be touring the neighborhoods of Newport on four separate nights this holiday season – December 5th, 7th, 12th, and 14th.

Newport officials remind parents to be safe please make sure that your children are accompanied by an adult and that they greet Santa from the sidewalk and do not enter the roadway. Santa will not be able to stop and pose for photographs along the route because he has to return to the North Pole to prepare for Christmas.

For exact routes each night, follow Newport Fire Department on Facebook.
