Don't Go to Santa-Let Santa Come to You: Santa Coming to Numerous Bowie Neighborhoods

The Bowie Volunteer Fire Department will be collecting canned goods for the Bowie Interfaith Pantry during the Santa Rides program again thisyear. Last year you were every generous, and we collected more than 1,100 donated food items. Unfortunately, the need for help in our community is even greater this year than last, and we ask that you donate if you are able.

For safety reasons, we ask that residents of courts come out to the main road to see Santa. Parents, please do not allow your children to climb on the apparatus. We do our best to follow the schedules outlined above, but sometimes have to make changes based on emergency responses and inclement eweather. In the event that we are unable to visit your section of Bowie on the scheduled night, we will attempt to make it up on another night.
