Your Hometown Fire Departmentprovides anAnnual Santa Around Town Tour every December canvasing all the Oviedo Homeowners Associations.The tour typically is scheduled towards the first or second week of December each year and takes 5 nights to complete. The tour begins promptly at 6 p.m. each night and concludes no later than 9 p.m. A rain makeup night follows the week long nightly tour just in case! Rumor has it that members of the Oviedo City Council can be seen taking part of this annual tradition, each knowing Santa on a personal basis!
Our Oviedo citizens have even planned their Christmas holiday parties on the same evening that Santa is scheduled to tour their neighborhood, which is usually decided by September of each year. This Hometown Tradition was begun by a dedicated group of volunteer firefighters over 30 years ago and is maintained today by the full time department and considered an annual special event by children and adults alike!
