If you see a fire truck racing to downtown Port Chester on Thursday, Dec. 6, look closely to see the special passenger on board: Santa.
Santa Claus will be getting an escort by the Port Chester Fire Department as he arrives in the village to help celebrate that holidays and light the Christmas tree in the downtown marina parking lot.
The holiday celebration, which includes music by the Port Chester High School Brass Band Ensemble, is set for 5:30 p.m. (The rain date is Friday, Dec. 7, at 5:30 p.m.)
There will be free hot chocolate and donuts, and gifts for children at the celebration. Santa and Port Chester Mayor Dennis Pilla are scheduled to light the Christmas tree at 5:45 p.m.
