Poulsbo Fire providing Santa tours through neighborhoods

Routes begin Nov. 26 through Dec. 18

Again this year, the Poulsbo Fire Department will be giving Santa a ride through neighborhoods, spreading cheer, handing out candy canes and collecting non-perishable food donations for North Kitsap Fishline.

Each evening will start with the first neighborhood at 5:30. If extreme weather requires a cancelation PFD will make every effort to reschedule that evening’s route at a later date.

“Our 100% vaccinated crews will also remain masked for close contact to hand out candy canes and collect Fishline donations,” PFD’s Facebook post reads. “Please join us in this joyous event by sharing photos and video, however please understand that Santa will not disembark his sleigh at any point during neighborhood tours.”

This year’s schedule is:

Friday 11/26 — Edgewater, Lofall, Surfrest

Saturday 11/27 — Viking Way neighborhoods from Inspiration St., Stendahl Ridge, lower Finn Hill and apartments south to city limits, finishing at Liberty Ridge Apartments.

Friday 12/3 — Urdahl, Claret Loop, Rhododendron and Woods and Meadows

Saturday 12/4 — Keyport to Scandia, then Mountain View to Kings Cross Cir. and Clear Creek to North Star and Piper Ct.

Friday 12/10 — Neighborhoods on the north side of Lincoln Rd. from Pugh Rd. to Forest Rock.

Saturday 12/11 — Neighborhoods on the south side of Lincoln Rd. From Noll Rd to 12th Ave. and Mesford Neighborhoods.

Friday 12/17 — Wood Creek, Mt. Aire, Deer Run and remaining neighborhoods on the south side of Hostmark St. to 10th Ave.

Saturday 12/18 — Torval Canyon, Poulsbo Place, Front St., 6th, Fjord and Holm Ct.

New this year, Santa will be live streaming his location and progress using Glympse; available as an app for iPhone and Android or through, according to a PFD Facebook post.

Each Friday and Saturday morning PFD will publish a map for the evening’s route and between 5 and 5:30 that evening they will publish the Glympse link on the PFD Facebook page so folks can follow the progress.
