Santa Plans Visits to Rockville Neighborhoods with Menorah Run Tuesday

The Rockville Volunteer Fire Department (RVFD) is once again helping Santa make his annual tour of Rockville.

The Rockville Volunteer Fire Department posted the 2018 schedule for Santa’s Tour and Menorah Run on their website and Facebook page. He has a busy schedule with so many neighborhoods in Rockville to visit. His visits will be between 6 and 8:45 p.m., most nights. But he suggests you check the RVFD Facebook page for updates.

Santa asks that everyone listen for the sirens and keep an eye out for him riding on the fire truck.

The Menorah run takes place Tuesday, Dec. 4 and has Santa, members of the fire department and the Chabad of Upper MoCo joining together for a parade through Fallsgrove, Potomac Glen, Washingtonian Woods, and Kentlands Shopping Center.

Rockville Volunteer Fire Department asks families who wish to see Santa to congregate at intersections and monitor the RVFD Facebook for live updates. Unfortunately it is not practical to drive down every street. Please do not follow Santa in your car as this is very dangerous and distracts the reindeer and may cause an accident. If your neighborhood is not on the schedule, please send RVFD a Facebook message or email

The Rockville Volunteer Fire Department is also selling Christmas Trees this year. Trees are being sold for $40 – $95 depending on their height, wreaths are $20. The Tree Lot is open Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Monday through Friday from 6 to 9 p.m. The RVFD Station 3 is located at 380 Hungerford Drive, next to Rockville Town Square.
