Santa Parade

Downtown Dover

See Santa and his elves driving through your neighborhood on Sunday, December 12 @ 1pm ! A route map can be viewed here:

A BIG THANK YOU to our Holiday Sponsor, First Seacoast Bank!

Santa will be leaving Central Fire Station promptly at 1pm. The route should take approximately 3 hours to complete. Check the map segments for your street and assume 20 - 30min per segment.

As you know, Santa is a very busy guy and as much as he and Mrs. Claus would love to visit each and every neighborhood, there just isn't enough time. Checkout the map to see where he's going and head over to a nearby street, if yours isn't on the route.

Santa has a lot of ground to cover and there just won't be time to stop and meet everyone. For safety, please stay on sidewalks and out of the streets.

If your street is on the route, then the best place is your front lawn! We'll be able to move slower through the neighborhoods and side streets than on main roads like Central Ave, so stay home or head over to a quieter street on the route.

Dover Main Street is a volunteer run organization that is focused on the betterment of Dover's Downtown. We are always in need of leaders and helpers for projects and programs throughout the year. Head over to to learn more!

Thank you to First Seacoast Bank for sponsoring this and all the Dover Main Street Holiday events. Be sure to checkout the Downtown ice sculptures which will be making their debut on various weeks throughout December.

Support our programs!

Thanks to our Sponsors!
