PORTSMOUTH, R.I. — Santa’s annual tour of Portsmouth will begin this Thursday, Dec. 1.
The starting date was posted Saturday on Santa’s new Facebook page, Santa’s Tour – Portsmouth.
The full schedule for 2016 is not posted yet, but you can follow along the Facebook page for updates. We will also continue to check the page and post updates. The schedule is also traditionally posted on OnAquidneck.
Volunteer elves organize Santa’s tour of Portsmouth each year, which starts from the Portsmouth Fire Department and continues through each neighborhood of town on a nightly basis (weather permitting). The annual event is not funded or organized by the town, but completely by volunteers.
If you have a “special needs” child who can’t get out to meet the sleigh, Santa would be pleased to make a stop and see him/her. Please email to make arrangements.
