Nokesville Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department will once again circulate through local communities dispensing candy with Santa beginning Saturday, Dec. 1 through Sunday, Dec. 16.

Every year Santa Claus visits  communities in Bristow, Nokesville and Gainesville on fire trucks, dispensing candy to children.
“After some intense negotiations with the scheduling elves, and some bribery consisting of the promise of hot cocoa and warm, oven baked cookies, we are happy to announce that we will once again be escorting Santa to see all of the good boys and girls of our [primary coverage area],” a spokesperson said.

Santa runs should begin by 10 a.m. on scheduled days.

“There may be times that the units escorting Santa are in service for 911 emergencies, he said. “As our primary mission is public safety, these units may suddenly stop and depart from the area if they are dispatched on an emergency; If units are dispatched, they will return as soon as possible to resume Santa escorting activities.”

The department cautions parents to make sure that children stay on the sidewalk during Santa’s visits.
“We ask that you please keep an eye on your children and not let them enter the street, or chase after the apparatus.” he said.
