We  had to cancel our annual Christmas parades this year. Santa Claus still really wants to come to town to say hello to all the Mississippi Mills kids who have been extra good this year.

Lucky for us the Mississippi Mills Fire Department is here to help! December 5th and 6th Santa will make 5 trips around different parts of Mississippi Mills. 

While he can't pass by every house, he's making a special effort to see as many of you as possible. If you are from a rural area or your street isn't on the route, please head to the closest area he will pass (maps and dates below). There will be plenty of space for social distancing. You can also sit in your parked car along the route.

Food Bank Donations

This year more than ever it's important to remember those in need. Donations of cash or food will be accepted along the route. In order to limit direct interaction between the public and the firefighters; food bins will be located along the route. Drop off locations will be available an hour before they pass and are marked on the maps below . Download the Food Banks Most Wanted Items.

Letters to Santa

Kids bring you letters! In order to limit direct interaction between the public and the firefighters; Santa bags for letters will be located along the route. Drop off locations will be available an hour before they pass and are marked on the maps below .One of Santa's helpers will follow along and take the letters and will make sure Santa Claus gets them.

COVID-19 Safety Precautions

If you do walk down the street to watch make sure you practice social distancing and stay 6 feet back from anyone not in your household. If you are planning to hand letters or food back donations please use one of the drop off locations marked on the maps below.
