Santa Claus is Comin' to Hoptown on December 20th

Even the cancellation of the Hopkinsville Christmas Parade won’t stop a local visit from Santa.

In a collaboration between Hopkinsville Parks & Recreation, Hopkinsville Fire Department and Hopkinsville Police Department, Jolly Ol’ St. Nick will be riding on a fire truck and visiting area neighborhoods Sunday, Dec. 20, during the inaugural Santa Claus is Comin’ to Hoptown event.

Only Santa is fast enough to travel around town with three separate, simultaneous runs, which will begin at 1 p.m. Sunday afternoon. A turn-by-turn list of truck routes is available below.

Each HFD fire truck will be followed by a HPD vehicle, which will safely distribute goodie bags to children.

This event and the bags are made possible by the aforementioned entities, as well as Planters Bank, Hopkinsville Electric System (HES)-EnergyNet, Hopkinsville Water Environment Authority (HWEA), Hopkinsville-Christian County Public Library and 1230 AM WHOP/Lite Rock 98.7 FM.

“We realize this has been a tough year for everyone, so we’ve been searching for unique ways we can still put smiles on the faces of children and families this weekend,” said Hopkinsville Parks and Recreation Superintendent Tab Brockman. “This idea was quickly brought to life by our willing partners and sponsors, and we grateful to all of them for bringing Santa Claus to Hoptown.”

Be prepared to take photos from a safe distance; Santa will be remaining on the truck during all neighborhoods stops and drive-bys. For more information, call 270-887-4290 or visit Facebook.com/HoptownParks.
