Santa Claus 🎅 arrived in Hawthorne!
The Borough of Hawthorne got plenty of attention from the most famous North Pole resident this week, aside from Christmas itself, when the Fire Department and Ladies Auxiliary held its SantaRun Sunday evening. Between 5:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m., residents may have heard the wail of sirens and the flashing of lights, emerging from their homes to see Santa Claus riding in the Fire Department’s rescue boat with Sparky the dalmatian, escorted by trucks with blazing fanfare.
The Fire Department joined with St. Nick to visit Jefferson Elementary, Roosevelt Elementary, Lincoln Middle School and Washington Elementary Schools for pictures and traveled throughout the town to give locals a chance to see the jolly old elf and Hawthorne’s fire dog.
A new feature for the SantaRun was the incorporation of an online GPS tracker through Glympse.com, so locals could see where Santa Claus was in real-time. Read more
In order to travel the town, there are two groups (NORTH & SOUTH) out tonight. The town will be split in two sides by Central Ave. They can be tracked by GPS with the following links:

On behalf of the members of the Hawthorne Fire Department and the Ladies Auxiliary we would like to thank you for your support and wish you a Merry Christmas! #HawthorneFireDeptNJ
