The Astoria Fire Department fire engines will be parading through neighborhoods in Astoria on Tuesday December 4th, Wednesday December 5th and Thursday December 6th from 6:30pm to 8:30pm.
Firefighters, family, and friends will be picking up non-perishable food items and donations for needy families this holiday season. The fire engines will be decorated with lights and playing Christmas music. We’ve heard that Santa Claus will be making an appearance to help us hand out candy canes and spread the Christmas joy!
