With the holiday season quickly approaching Santa has no time to waste packing his sleigh–so thankfully the New York City Fire Department is going out of their way to rescue the jolly Old Saint Nick from an NYC rooftop this holiday season.
On Sunday, December 3rd, an FDNY ladder truck will embark on a daring mission to save Christmas and rescue none other than Santa Claus himself as he finds himself stuck on the New York City Fire Museum rooftop.
Spectators can watch in excitement as Santa Claus is lifted high above the crowd, waving and spreading joy to all who witness the wondrous event. And, once safely rescued, Santa will head inside to the museum’s third floor where he’ll be posing for photos, taking gift requests, and participating in other fun family activities.
Last year’s event included a live performance of carols, balloon artists providing candy cane balloon art, and FDNY Fire Safety handing out fire helmets and coloring books.
It’s completely free to view the rescue take place in front of the museum. However, to come inside to the museum afterwards, sit with Santa, and participate in other activities, tickets are required.
Tickets are $20 per person and can be purchased here. Children under two years old are free but a free ticket must still be reserved in advance.
The annual Santa Rescue is a sight that is bound to warm your heart and make the holiday season unforgettable.
So mark your calendar, set your alarm, and be sure to arrive on time! After all, you don’t want to find yourself on the naughty list.
🗓️ Sunday, December 3, 12 p.m.
