BY REBECCA BENNETT — The Hyattsville Volunteer Fire Department (HVFD) says their yearly Santa Run has expanded from one nights to three!  Santa will cover 30 miles total from 6 to 8 p.m on Dec. 13, 19, and 20.

“This is our first year expanding this beyond a one-night program so please bear with us as we hope to grow this great fun experience for the kids in our community!”

HVFD says while these are the likely routes below, they cannot provide specific times or streets — spectators should be on the lookout for Santa’s sirens. Routes are subject to change as a result of time, weather, and emergency response needs.  HVFD says all schedule changes will be posted to Facebook.
