The Andover Firefighter's Santa Parade 
 A holiday tradition since 1955!

Sunday, November 30th, 2014
Downtown Andover, Ma. 


"A Christmas Story"
       

WE WISH TO THANK EVERYONE FOR PARTICIPATING AND FOR COMING OUT TO ENJOY THIS YEAR'S EVENT! WE HAD GREAT WEATHER AND HOPE EVERYONE HAD A GREAT TIME! WE HAD GREAT DANCERS, PERFROMANCES, AND SOME WONDERFULLY DECORATED FLOATS THIS YEAR.
WINNERS OF THE FLOAT COMPETITION ARE LISTED BELOW, CONGRATULATION TO THE MOTHER CONNECTION FOR ANOTHER WIN THIS YEAR!

 The Andover Firefighter's Relief Association, with assistance from The Andover Firefighters union, I.A.F.F. LOCAL 1658, has hosted the event since 1955, 
providing a majority of the funding and support needed.  This tradition began with an annual fire truck parade around town, featuring Santa, followed by a fire house visit at the old Park Street Station. OVER THE YEARS IT has transformed into the great event it is today with numerous groups now taking part. The holiday parade is one of the many ways your local firefighters give back to the community they serve.
