AUBURN, Mass. – The Auburn Fire Department wants to remind families that Santa Claus is making a last-minute tour of Auburn on Saturday before he delivers presents in a few days.

The Fire Department will be bringing Santa around town on a fire truck on Dec. 22, a tradition for kids and families. The Santa tour has been going on since 1954, said Fire Chief Stephen Coleman.

The tour starts at approximately 11 a.m. from the Drury Square Fire Station, wrapping up around 9 p.m. When the truck goes through the streets, Santa throws candy for the kids.

This link will bring you to the Santa tour route. Approximate times are listed next to some of the places or streets on the route. Coleman asks that residents be patient as this is all dependent upon traffic and times are subject to change.

We are new to Auburn and I want to express my gratitude to the Auburn Fire Department and the Auburn Police Department for this evenings experience. My children were thrilled with the Fire Truck full of lights as well as Santa. The Grinch was a bonus! I had no idea this would all happen. Much more than we expected. I am very proud to be a part of this community.

Looks like they cut out Harrison ave. WITHOUT NOTICE.
I hope they are going to cut out the taxes it cost to do this FOR HARRISON AVE TOO.

My 2 1/2 year old grand daughter sat here for 3 hours waiting for for them to come. Another let down provided by the clowns who run the town of Auburn.
