Ronkonkoma Fire Department’s holiday parade set for Dec. 11


Santa Claus and the Ronkonkoma Fire Department are set to make the rounds in local neighborhoods on Saturday, Dec. 11, as part of the department’s annual Parade of Lights.

The fun begins at 3:30 p.m. with firefighter escorting Santa down dozens of neighborhood streets.

“We will drive around the district and try to get to as many blocks as we possibly can,” the Ronkonkoma Fire Department said in a Facebook post.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Santa will not make stops this year, the fire department noted. To see where Santa will be — and when he’ll be there — click here for the full parade route.
